Loren Eaton likes words both written and spoken. He has a degree in literature from Wheaton College (one of the top-60 schools in the United States as ranked by U.S. News & World Report) and is currently a student at Florida Atlantic University’s College of Business. He understands that words need to sell as well as scintillate—and vice versa. A regular contributor to the creative-parenting site Story Warren and longtime blogger at I Saw Lightning Fall, he has published articles and stories in Plugged In, The Drabblecast, Needle: A Magazine of Noir, Port Iris, and the Untreed Reads anthologies Grimm Tales and Discount Noir. He is also the copy editor of Wildlife Photographic. When not writing, he enjoys genre fiction, podcasting, business news, economics, literary theory, theology, video games, and the more-than-occasional cup of homeroasted coffee. He lives in south Florida with his family.
