Snodlander was an IT trainer, but it wasn't not as glamorous as it sounds. He was bitten by the writing bug in the Autumn of 2006 and is now totally addicted. He lives in the rural Portugal with his wife in the most beautiful house. He writes when it's too hot to enjoy the garden or pool.
Snodlander has an audio story - A Rose by Any Other Name - published at voxfabula and an Audiobook - The Young Demon Keeper - available from Circle of Spears or Audible.

(No, Portugal isn't on the Mediterranean nor part of Spain)

(The UK is that little theme park off of the coast of Europe.)
