Hi, my name is Penfold…just Penfold. You can call me Pen. My wife is Liza, Russian woman from Estonia, jaded English teacher and fiber artist with mad knitting skills.  My kids are Katya and Dima, sister and brother from deep in the heart of Ukraine. We adopted them several years ago now, and we live together deep in the heart of Indiana. Katya and Dima are adorable little schemers, though not as adorable as they think they are.

I’ve been working in software development and security for several years now, but I’ve always wanted to write for a living. A few years ago, I realized it was time to give writing an honest shot. And so here we are. Aren’t we?
