   Writers: Clay Shannon (United States)  
  About the author  

Clay Shannon has lived a varied and wide-ranging life. From cowboying in northern California to working in a printery in Brooklyn, New York; from delivering mail in the rurals of Montana to delivering interoffice correspondence as courier for a bank in Anchorage, Alaska; and from working as a blaster ('powder monkey') in a northern California gold mine to employment as a computer programmer in various locations throughout the United States, Clay has seen both the blue- and the white-colored worlds from the inside.

Always an artist at heart, though, Clay has been an avid guitarist, photographer (having had several photographs published), and writer. His earliest writing experience was as the founder, editor, publisher, writer, publicist, salesman, chief cook and bottle-washer of 'The Weirdly News', a comedic newsletter that enjoyed a brief heyday during his elementary school years.

In the intervening years, Clay has written two computer programming books, as well as numerous technical articles appearing in a variety of magazines.

A native of northern California, Clay has lived in seven states (Alaska, California, Idaho, Montana, New York, Oklahoma and Wisconsin) and visited all but one (Hawaii). He currently resides in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin with his wife, two sons, and a menagerie of assorted animals.
