About The Author

Mark Oetjens

I was born in 1971 and grew up in suburban Chicago. As a child I was diagnosed with Dystonia, a debilitating neuromuscular disorder. Though there is no cure for Dystonia, surgeries and rehabilitation allowed me to walk with only a slight limp by the time I started high school. I received a B.A. in English and an M.A. in Anthropology, both from Northern Illinois University. As an adult a brain tumor, completely unrelated to the Dystonia, threatened to disable me a second time. Thanks to radiation therapy the tumor has disappeared. I currently live and write in Phoenix, AZ.
