Dan R. Herrick is a technologist by trade, a raconteur by disposition, and a practical strategist. He lives in the foothills of Colorado, with a roughly equal number of children and cats, and a wife who tolerates and supports his storytelling habit. Dan works at a public university, wrangling computing technology and its caretakers into some semblance of order. He writes both fiction and nonfiction because he cannot decide which is more interesting. He enjoys writing about himself in the third person entirely too much.
