About the author (2012)

Mark McClelland studied Computer Science and Creative Writing at the University of Michigan's Residential College, where he won a Hopwood Award for poetry. After graduating in 1994, he promptly sold his soul to his software career, and is now writing to win it back. He writes in search of truths that defy simple, direct expression, and publishes to share his discoveries with others. He lives in Chicago with his wife, Nancy, and two cats, and is currently working on a follow-up to Upload and a children's story featuring a fox named Cyril Frolix. He also writes poetry for his wife, sole member of the highly exclusive Poem-of-the-Month Club.
