Jeremy Broyles’ formative years were spent reading hand-me-down science fiction novels often missing covers. After that, he was a goner. He studied English at Doane College, earned a Master’s from Northern Arizona University, and graduated from the MFA program at Wichita State University in 2011. Since then, he has worked as a professor in Nebraska, and his love affair with the written word has yet to cool. His work has been published in such journals as Mikrokosmos, The MacGuffin, and Santa Clara Review. His writing can also be found online at Sliver of Stone. Find him on Tumblr and share your own stories. After all, nothing in this world matters more than the stories we tell.
