Devin Poore left the wilds of Indiana at the age of 18 for Uncle Sam's Yacht Club, otherwise known as the U.S. Navy. After six years of working on and utilizing shipboard anti-aircraft missile systems, he left the Navy and, following several twists and turns, settled in the New York City area. Devin's non-fiction has appeared on many history and model building websites around the internet, and his fiction has appeared online at Eschatology, and in print in Sybil's Garage, where he also worked as a non-fiction contributor and an associate editor. Recently he has had stories published in Shades of Blue and Gray: Ghosts of the Civil War, has had several articles on the naval aspects of the American Civil War published as part of the New York Times’ “Disunion” feature, and will have his story “Forgotten” featured in an upcoming podcast from Toasted Cake. When he isn't writing short stories and novels that deal with everything from vampires to magic to the Civil War, Devin makes his living in New York City as a computer consultant, and builds highly detailed models of ships and spacecraft that most people have never heard of. He currently resides in Hoboken, NJ, with his beautiful and talented wife, Kristen Mangione.
