Writer Bio

Oz Monroe is an international entertainer, award winning author, and outspoken advocate for independent publishing. After dropping out of high school at age 16, Oz made his living as a juggler and fire eater, eventually deciding to pursue further education in theology, philosophy, and astrophysics. He is a member of the Interstellar Philosophy Group, and participated in Icarus Interstellar’s 2013 and 2015 Starship Congress. His knowledge of both the arts and sciences led him to be invited to join the 2016 Tennessee Valley Interstellar Workshop, a think tank devoted to discussing the challenges for mankind to achieve and survive interstellar travel. Oz is an active member of MENSA, and a passionate proponent of Humanism and critical thinking. His blog has been known to cover topics both bawdy and brainy, but his favorite thing to do is write science fiction and fantasy. His debut dark fantasy novel “Soil-Man” has won the IPPY Gold Medal for Horror, and the Next Generation Indie Book Award for Best First Novel. Soil-Man was released in early January 2016. Oz was born and raised in central California. He resides on a ranch in the Sierra Nevada foothills with his wife and four children.
