About the Author
C.D. Reimer lives and works in Silicon Valley. His interests are ceramics, painting, tropical fish, and web programming.

After serving two tours through The Twilight Zone as a child and a young adult Christian, he writes about everyday reality that he often finds weird, twisted and absurd for being so normal. He’s currently working on various short stories and his first novel, and blogs about writing and everything else when he's not busy writing fiction.
