I'm a freelance writer and (thankfully) former high school teacher. My fiction has appeared in Asimov'sThe Best of Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet, and Steampunk II: Steampunk Reloaded.  The digital edition of my Nebula-nominated novella Tucker Teaches the Clockies to Copulate just recently became available on Amazon. I've also contributed often--and enthusiastically--to the “Ask the Giant Squid” advice column at Poor Mojo's Almanac(k). My nonfiction (both credited and ghostwritten) pops up all over the place, from business columns and marketing matrials to textbooks and reference works.  But you're probably reading this because of my 2010 DIY book Snip, Burn, Solder, Shred: Seriously Geeky Stuff to Make with Your Kids (No Starch Press).    Find me online at www.davideriknelson.com Follow me on Twitter:@SquiDaveo
