Short Biography (under 100 words)
Brian Hugenbruch is a speculative fiction writer and poet living in Upstate New York with his wife and their daughter. He spends his days explaining information security and cryptograophy to other nerds.

Slightly Longer Biography
Brian Hugenbruch is a writer currently living in Upstate New York with his wife and their daughter. Depending upon who you ask, he’s been writing since he was fourteen, nine, or even three years old. It’s been a while, though, no matter how one parses it.
He is originally from the northeastern corner of Pennsylvania, US (or as the locals call it, NEPA), and he grew up washing dishes in the service industry. He graduated from Lafayette College in 2000 with a dual degree in Computer Science and English.
His poetry has been nominated for the Rhysling award for Short Poems. His story, “Foster-Child of Silence and Slow Time,” was a finalist (2021) for the Small Press Short Fiction award. The local newspaper has referred to him as, “other local writers include.”
You can find him on Twitter (grudgingly) @Bwhugen, on Instagram @the-lettersea, and at the-lettersea.com. No, he’s not sure how to say his last name, either.
