While growing up, David was that weird kid who always had his nose in a book and his head in the clouds. He was the table-top role-playing game geek, the comic-book nerd, the storyteller and dreamer. Fortunately, he hasn’t changed much. David Reiss is a software engineer by trade and long-time sci-fi and fantasy devotee by passion, and he resides in Silicon Valley with his partner of thirty years. Also, until recently, a disturbingly spoiled cat named Freya. Farewell, tiny huntress. You were loved. You are missed. Two new cats - Colby and Jackie - have since infiltrated the household and now rule their domain with iron paws.
