About the Author

Everything you wanted to know about the misadventures of a hoary, surly server wrangler who hung up his hat and decided to try to tell stories to entertain others.

I have no idea what I'm doing, but when has that ever stopped me?
B.D. Landis

Not Yet an Award Winning Author

There will be more text here, in time.

B.D. Landis was born in Alaska, then spent his early life growing up in the forested hills of the Pacific Northwest, sparking a lifelong love of nature and the outdoors. His family moved to Southern California when he was a child, exposing him to a rich tapestry of people and cultures. He later moved back to the Pacific Northwest to attend college.

A lifelong tinkerer, he spent the next twenty years working in IT and IT-adjacent roles. In 2020, he and his wife moved back to Southern California. Eager for a career change, he retired from IT and began exploring other options.

You can occasionally find him on Mastodon here.
