About the Author
Darkness. Light. Wonder. Beauty. God. Tentacles.
Those who know Byron Leavitt best would say that pretty well sums him up. Those who don’t know him as well would make the description simpler: they would just say, “That dude’s weird.” This is an accurate appraisal as well.
Byron spends a lot of time thinking about God, the nature of things, and the wondrous glimmer of light in the dark. He thinks a lot about death, too. What it means for us here, and what it means for us beyond. Does that make him morbid? Maybe. Some would certainly think so, and it would account for his twisted sense of humor. But he’ll let you be the judge.
Byron is married to his best friend, Sarah, and they live in a centennial Swiss-style house with their two daughters, Aurora and Eden, their butler, Egad, their gremlin, Brain, their gargoyle baby, and any number of carnivorous plants. Their deck is encased in Morning Glory. Byron recently went into remission from recurring Hodgkin’s Lymphoma following a bone marrow transplant, a journey you can read about in this very book. You can also read many of his current and past musings on his blog, “Life Springs,” at http://www.lifespringseternal.com. He is also hard at work on his next book, "The Fish in Jonah's Puddle (To Say Nothing of the Demon)", which he is posting chapter by chapter on Life Springs as he writes it. You should check it out.
When Byron is not writing in the third person, he will often address you as himself. Hi there.
