About Improvbear

Master of all trades and jack of none. Published author (novels, collections, screenplays, articles, etc.), actor/improvist, director, trainer/coach, certified mediator, and reader of Tarot. Since I couldn't decide what I wanted to be when I grew up, I decided to do everything and never grow up! Let's just hope that you don't think my reviews are childish.

My background includes schooling in Texas (I got over it by becoming an autodidact), experience with Korporate Amerika in many potentially tragic situations, and a lifetime of not only marching to a different drummer but attempting to limbo under the wire of acceptable behavior whenever possible.  I've provided voices for Japanese anime (English-language dubs), I've been an invited speaker to more than 30 anime conventions, I've been on several book-signing tours (gathering far more stories than royalties!), and I was once paid $5 for being entertaining in a men's room. (You'll have to ask -- the event is actually completely innocent, but it sounds great when I say it like that.)

Bragging rights (if any) include being a member of Mensa, being voted Industry Person of the Year for two years running by the oldest anime club in the U.S., making Who's Who in America (yeah, the one you don't have to pay for), and having a former boss write a letter of recommendation which included the words: "CAUTION: Hiring this person could greatly increase your productivity and expose you to potentially dangerous levels of silliness. The Surgeon General reminds you that there is no true cure for silly." I treasure that recommendation.

Married (except in 32 states) to a magnificent young man named Jybian who looks after me quite well, when he's not fighting in the "zombie-pocalypse" or off playing D&D with friends. We can sometimes be found in local eateries, enjoying our fare and being silly with the wait staff (we tip well, don't worry).
