Bio – Unofficial
Just in case you were interested in stuff like this. As you might guess, Rion Wilhelm is a pseudonym (see, I even lie about my name) but what follows is correct about the real “me”.
I am a writer, artisan and web designer living in Rohnert Park, California, a town of about 70 thousand people, located in the Northern California Wine Country. Actually, the sign at the city limits proclaims we are “The Gateway to the Wine Country” although you will certainly see your share of grapevines long
before you reach us. Until recently, I was a senior IT Project Manager for a local division of large “Fortune 500? company. I received my degree in undergrad degree in Anthropology from Georgia State University and my minor was in English with an emphasis on Creative Literature. Currently, I’m continuing
my writing studies through a variety of online and offline venues and working on my Masters In Fine Arts.
I love soft rock, Kris Kristofferson, Pink Floyd, U2, The Eagles and Bruce Springstein (I realize I’m dating myself, but I am, after all, a child of the 60’s). For music to write by, I prefer ‘world’, new age or smooth jazz (and, of course, a glass of Zinfindel or a good cup of coffee). My Sci-Fi readings tend
toward heroic fantasy, post-apocalyptic fiction, alternate universes and epic adventures, while my other reading habits are quite eclectic. My greatest regret is that I have yet to master a decent time paradox. I read fiction and non-fiction equally,
but will cheerfully state that Dan Brown is a genius, Roger Zelazny was a god, Michael Moorcock is a visionary, Isaac Asimov was the modern Michelangelo and Gene Roddenberry was indeed the Great Bird of the Universe.
Make it so!
