About [Bio & Credits]

cropped-common-raven-portrait-c2a9-christopher-martin-21.jpg

Brandon L. Rucker is a lifelong bookworm, music nerd and comic book geek and has been at various times a published author of articles, blogs, columns, poems, stories and reviews, as well as a performing musician, music producer and recording artist. He has even spent a few years as a short story editor.

A child of the early 1970s, Rucker hails from the Midwest region of the USA where the summers are insufferably humid and the winters increasingly unbearable. He lives with his nuclear family and an assortment of pets. Armed with grammar, diction and a strong sense of rhythm and melody, he is at large and potentially dangerous.
