Scott Mitchel May has been a dropout, a carwash attendant, a (suspected) taxi thief, a pony-wheel operator, a line cook, and a legislative staffer for three Democratic State Senators. Scott writes inventive literary fiction ranging from dysfunctional family sagas, to fear future horror-noir thrillers, to post-apocalyptic epics. Though primarily a novelist, he has had his short fiction featured in many publications and has recently published his first collection of short stories titled Dekalb, Illinois is a Paradise What Eats Its Own. Scott lives in Wisconsin with his wife and son. You can find him at scottmitchelmay.com, or on Twitter @smitchelmay.
