Jeff Blackmer has lived in Portland Oregon for most of his life. He has a love of learning and one may get an idea of his varied interests by looking at his Stumbleupon page:
Photography, humor, astronomy, ancient history, internet tools, computers, space exploration, movies, archaeology, science fiction, mythology, alternative health, health, classic rock, medieval history, comedy, rock and oldies music.

He always wanted to be a science fiction writer and is quite baffled as to how he ended up publishing dark age historical fantasy.
