About the Author
Tim Wellman was born and raised in West Virginia. He grew up hunting and fishing and hiking the hills and mountains around his family home. As a teen he learned to use a metal lathe and milling machine and became a hobby machinist interested mostly in steam engines. After high school he became the lead guitarist for a completely unknown rock band, then in a beer-induced coma, attended Marshall University for four years as a Creative Writing major. He won several state and school awards for writing, then gave it up after college to become a failed comic book artist. After a short career marked most notably by starvation and extreme poverty, he decided to become a grease monkey and repair small engines for a living and just continue drawing as a hobby. He did that for several years before getting the creative urge to write again. Hence, Milk Of Ruin was born. He still lives in West Virginia with his dog and three cats, collections of antiques, DVD movies, vintage computers, and video game consoles, and is currently working on a Milk Of Ruin artbook and a second novel set in the Milk Of Ruin universe. Oh, and he still repairs small engines for a living.
