After seven years of writing poetry and short stories, William Van Winkle realized that publishing computing articles yielded more paychecks. Before long, he became a full-time freelancer for the likes of Tom's Hardware, PC Magazine, CPU, PC World, Computer Shopper, IGN, and others. Today, he produces a spectrum of articles, papers, bios, blog posts, infographics, videos, and more for many of the companies he used to review -- occasionally quirky but always reaching to make an emotional connection between content and viewer.
Roughly two million non-fiction words and one bald spot later, William realized he had just as many fiction words stored up in need of an audience. He writes fantasy and science fiction that focuses on fun with a whetted edge.
William now pounds out tech content and stories of all stripes as fast as his fingers can manage. He lives in Hillsboro, Oregon with his wife, two sons, two nieces, and one surprisingly small Great Dane.
