Grumpy Old Gods Volume 1
About Shawn Klimek
Shawn M. Klimek joined college on a fine arts scholarship which was why his professors were dismayed to find him constantly in the drama department. When they demanded he choose between an artist’s life of poverty, alienation and endless isolation mitigated by friends demanding free portraits and tattoos; or an actor’s life of poverty, hunger for validation, and the companionship of noisy, delusional extroverts forever needing to crash on a couch they will be too busy to help you move, he decided to become a writer instead.
He took the long path to becoming a writer, beginning as a journalist in the U.S. Army. Thirty more years of stuff happened, including a wife, a talented* puppy, an assignment in Japan, and writing on the side—all part of the wild, Cinderella story culminating in his becoming published in this anthology.
