Call in to speak with the host
Chad Schimke was born in Webster, South Dakota. Where his family tree took root in the Homestead Act era, near Mount Rushmore and the Black Hills. He grew up in Lobo Canyon, New Mexico, where there were early signposts to a writing life. It’s a landscape dominated by the Acoma Pueblo in the shadow of a uranium boom via pasó por aquí on the way to El Morro.
Now, he resides in San Francisco, in a churning white hot crucible of artists and writers. He has been influenced by the literary heritage of each setting along the way. You can often find him at an art gallery opening, attending a cultural event or at a writer’s critique group, which he organizes.
He holds a total of three advanced degrees from the College of Santa Fe and San Francisco State University. Chad is the author of Picker, Pieces, Walker, Weirder self-published in 2012. His articles on writing reference have appeared on CloudReviews.com as well as SelfPublishingReviews.com. He will release Secrets--an action-packed paranormal thriller--via Seventh Window Publications later in 2013. His short story entitled Hallowseve will appear in PsychoPomp (a Halloween anthology) also this year. For new projects, he’s working with an editor on a fantasy horror novella as well as drafting a new thriller.
It's good to talk.
