Jay Barnson is a writer, software engineer, and an award-winning video game developer. He has written fiction and non-fiction for several anthologies and magazines, including The Escapist and Cirsova, and a DragonComet award winner. A transplant to Utah, Jay was born in the hills of West Virginia, and uses the word “y’all” by choice, not by habit. And for the last time, he’s not the one to blame for the one sock of each pair that keeps going missing in your dryer. It was the aliens!
