John M Olsen loves to create things through both technical and creative processes, whether building family, stories, art, software, woodworking or anything else. He has dreams of becoming a Renaissance man and is constantly learning new things to add to his store of randomly accessible information (otherwise known as irrelevant trivia). His interest in writing is due to his father’s extensive fantasy and science fiction collection, which he devoured during his teen years and has since inherited.
He has contributed chapters to several books on computer graphics and game design, as well as publishing fiction in multiple genres. He lives in Utah with his wife and a constantly changing subset of their children and extended family.
