After more than a decade teaching history, religion, and philosophy, Brian decided to write epic fantasy. He now lives on a steep dirt road in the hills of southern Vermont, where he divides his time between fathering, writing, husbanding, splitting wood, skiing, and adventuring - not necessarily in that order. He can be found on twitter at @brianstaveley, on Facebook as BrianStaveley, and on Google+ as Brian Staveley. His blog, On the Writing of Epic Fantasy, can be found at: bstaveley.wordpress.com.
If I was still wondering if my son is, in fact, my son, the fact that all he wanted to do at Disney was climb the boulders was a hint...

Disney World, as it turns out, is far less magical for a person with food poisoning. Who knew???
