A slow faucet leak that'd dripped every few minutes during summer had turned into the small glacier Sabine was now chipping through with a Philips head screwdriver.

Morgan lives in Seattle as a compromise between the frozen north of his childhood in Alaska and a  love of technology that pulled him disastrously close to California that one time.

He paints, writes, pretends to garden, buys more books than he reads and tinkers on robots and  games while working full time in the game industry.
