Author's Bio

Erik JM Schneider has no idea where he is from. Born female to all appearances near Seattle, he grew up a young girl in the middle of a pine forest in north Georgia. Some time after returning to the West Coast, he slipped into a body more suitable and gave up his search for rockstardom to be a poet. He has a PhD in Rhetoric from UC Berkeley, which mainly functions to remind him that he can write linearly when necessary.
