J.B. Reynolds lives in rural Northland, New Zealand. He writes short fiction, and is also working (very slowly) on a novel about an ex-cop turned security guard who accidentally time-travels back to the medieval past. When not writing, he's a husband, father, son, and high school teacher (not necessarily in that order). He likes sailing, cycling, and playing music. He has a big garden and likes getting dirt under his fingernails.
