D.M. Schmeyer has a lifetime passion for story – and a life full of stories. He is a trained actor, a political volunteer, a stand up comedian and a martial artist. A voracious reader, his tastes have always varied from hard-core history to high fantasy, biography to poetry. This breadth of experience and depth of interest gives him a powerful voice as an emerging writer. Schmeyer is an esteemed graduate of two universities, having earned a B.A. from the University of Denver, and a J.D. from Golden Gate University, and is an attorney in the state of Colorado. When he’s not writing or working, he loves relaxing with friends and playing games (Good stories are a must!)
"I fell in love with storytelling at the youngest possible age, when memory is fluid and hazy and the written word is only just crystallizing into language. Since the day I learned to read and socialize, I've been enjoying stories written by others and attempting to write my own. Here at the Loresworn Order, I get to share my love of storytelling with everybody else who shares my passion. It's incredible."
"A lot of my stories grew out of the table top games I used to play with my buddies, and the content dreamed up during wonderful laps around the playground. I write to share that imagination. I want my readers to walk away with something that's unique and fresh. I don't need to change the world; I just want to give people a fun escape - an afternoon someplace fantastic."
