My name is Jeremiah Blane Kniola. I live in Chicago with my girlfriend, dog, and cat. Recently I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a Bachelors in English. My writing experiments with many different genres, balancing somewhere between Literary and Speculative Fiction. I have stories published with Hobart, Literary Orphans, Dogzplot, Rock and a Hard Place, among others. I love jazz, Ingmar Bergman, Basquiat, a good cup of coffee, and a cold Gin & Tonic.
