Freelance writer, English instructor, poker player, biker, and roustabout, Travis Heermann is the author of two published novels, a metric ton of role-playing game work both in print and online, and has sold short fiction pieces to several anthologies and magazines. He taught English in Japan for three years, where he stood out like a space alien with his head on fire. He now lives in a much larger world than before, and has two long-cherished dreams: a NYT bestseller and a seat in the World Series of Poker.
