At age thirteen, Mason Thomas decided to write a letter to his favorite author, Isaac Asimov. A few weeks later, to his surprise, a postcard arrived for him in the mail. Typed out by Asimov personally--mistakes and all--and signed at the bottom.
And so began Mason's writing journey. Inspired by not only Asimov's work and his amazing wit, but also by the generosity and kindness he showed to a nerdy young fan, Mason has been writing stories ever since.
Mason is still just a nerdy teenager, although his hairline and belt length indicate otherwise. When his fingers are not pounding away at a keyboard, they can usually be found holding a video-game controller, plucking away at an electric guitar, or shaking a twenty-sided die during a role-playing game. Mason will take any opportunity to play dress-up, whether through cosplay, Halloween, or a visit to a Renaissance Faire. He loves to travel whenever he can but spends most of his year residing in the amazing city of Chicago.
