Laston Kirkland was born In Plattsburgh New York, grew up in several places including Florida, Texas, Taiwan, Colorado, Idaho, Washington and Alaska. A nerdy kid who grew up loving roleplaying games, science, technology, and learning how things work.
When he grew older (he still hasn't grown up) he taught math and science for a while, and took all sorts of unusual jobs in the summers. Some he loved, such as driving combines on Idaho pea fields, and some he hated, such as washing combines on Idaho pea fields.
He now lives in Woodinville Washington with his wife, three daughters, and an old cat. He spends as much time as the world will let him dreaming about people, places, things and ideas that only exist in his head.
He also finds it exceedingly difficult to write about himself in the third person.
