Kevin Swanwick resides in the Hudson Valley of New York with his wife, two children, and mother in-law. Having worked in the post-modern machinery of the technology industry for over 30 years, Kevin is attempting to engage his erstwhile and neglected career as a writer of essays and fiction. He finds the world a terribly complex place and likes to write about it from the perspective of a grateful citizen of Carthage who got to watch the Romans invade but was spared because of his accidental usefulness. His essays and some fiction can be found in Elephant Journal, LA Progressive and on his blog, in no particular order.
