Hello, I’m Seth. I like to write fiction about what happens when the going gets weird. I’m also a software engineer. My main programming languages are Java and Python, and I’m interested in building high-performance APIs. I live on a farm in Appalachia with my wife, two sons, and cat.
If you’re interested in my technical work …
Between 2014 and December 2016, I earned a Computer Science B.A. from Marshall University. I’ve worked as a software engineer for a Fortune 500 company, a state government agency, and a small web development shop.
If you’re interested in my fiction, non-fiction, and life before engineering…
In 2003, I earned a degree in English from Marshall University. Years of odd jobs (pizza delivery, substitute teaching, etc) led to teaching English in Seoul, South Korea. While there, I began writing fiction and non-fiction. The former would turn into the End of the Iron Age series, the latter a blog and a little freelance writing business I ran from 2009 and 2014. I’ve taken a couple years off fiction to focus on my technical studies, but I will resume work in the near future.
My literary influences include Robert Heinlein, Joyce Carol Oates, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tom Robbins, Neal Stephenson, Joseph Heller, Paulo Coelho, Margaret Atwood, Tom Wolfe, and damn near every other author I’ve ever read.
