Nick Svolos dropped out of high school in his senior year, joined the Navy and spent the next several years sailing around the western Pacific on the USS Enterprise. After discharge, he roamed around a bit and finally landed in software development. After his most recent job ended in a layoff, he decided to take a timeout and indulge the voices in his head by writing a novel. Now, he ekes out a living as a freelance web developer and spends the rest of his time writing about the stuff he loves, namely, mysteries involving superheroes and orcs.
He lives in Crescent City, CA, with his lovely wife Charlotte, their youngest son, Tommy, and a couple of layabout cats, Sprocket and Daphne. Everyone in the house is an avid gamer, and their home often resounds to the sound of tumbling dice. The cats prefer games involving small birds and lizards, but they’re more than happy to take a whack at a d20 if they get a chance.
