About

Polaroid

Devin was born in St. Francis hospital when the Earth’s population was four billion people. His mother died when he was three-months old, so he was raised by his paternal grandparents. His real father died when Devin was a teenager.

Devin began writing as a child and at 17 he won a handful of awards at the Mississippi Valley Writer’s conference. He then went to Illinois State University where he often discussed writing with David Foster Wallace.

In the late 90’s, Devin took aid to the war victims in Bosnia and played goaltender for his college team. After graduation he worked as a Features reporter for an alt-weekly, and covered tennis and wrestling for the local daily.

His first book “Sponsored By…” (a fictional novel about baby’s being sponsored by corporations) was published by the Midwest Writing Center in 2000. He also had short stories and articles appear in the now defunct “Dead of Night,” “Swank,” and “Slurve.”

Devin opened an independent cinema pub at age 28, and it closed four years later. He worked as a freelance writer and had two of his original plays produced. Then, while simultaneously raising his three daughters at home, Devin opened a small web development company that still operates today.

Devin has ran unsuccessfully for city council, hiked Cross Mountain barefoot, ridden his bike 500 miles across Iowa,  appeared on stage with Don Ho, played poker with John Daly, held a fundraiser for Barack Obama, acted in community theater, was a volunteer animal abuse investigator, coached tennis and softball, and traveled from Alaska to Mexico.

His favorite books are The Killer Inside MeBlood Meridian, and American Psycho. His favorite dog breed is the Norwegian Elkhound.

Devin’s newest book, “Guts: the Lane Evans Story” is set for publication in February of 2019.

In his lifetime the Earth’s population has grown to seven billion people. His first word was Baby, because that’s what he was, and his last word will likely be Insignificant.
