And they have a plan.

BIO: Mike Kalmbach grew up in a forest near Lake Michigan. Spending his summers chasing wizards and fighting battles with evil ogres, Mike has always had a creative mind. He'll often share stories from his past, and some of them are even true. After life dragged him from childhood, Mike moved into freelance editing, helping other authors improve dozens of stories. He leads the Rochester MN Writing group and often speaks on topics from writing and editing to engineering and robotics.  Luckily, Mike now has two sons, so he has plenty of excuses to set down the pen and play. He lives in Minnesota where he can still be found battling ogres, dust bunnies, and evil military leaders
