Eric Oppen

I was born in Iowa Falls, IA in 1961, attended the local schools and then went to St. Olaf College, where I majored in East Asian studies, took the Term in China (mainly in Taiwan) and graduated in 1983. Since then, I've lived in Iowa Falls, working as-and-when… jobs have been hard to find and I haven't been able to afford to leave.

I've had my writings published professionally, mainly in Dragon magazine, and one short story in There Will Be War: After Armageddon.

I haven't many digital pictures of myself around; I prefer to be behind the camera. This was taken at my class reunion in 2009, so it's pretty close to present reality.
