Carl D. Smith is an Iowa native. He received his Bachelor of Arts from Nebraska Christian College and his PharmD from Creighton University School of Pharmacy and Health Professions. He works as a pharmacist but his favorite job ever was working at a roller rink in Norfolk,Nebraska. He is a lifelong fan of fantasy and science fiction. His favorite possession as a child was his Dungeons and Dragons Basic Rules“red box,” which inspired him to design a similar role playing game system for families and young players,Play Your Own Adventure.

Carl has wanted to be a writer since he first read “The Veldt” by Ray Bradbury in 5th grade. The author still resides in the city where he was born, raising his amazing two children with his wife and high school sweetheart. His interests include the Chicago Cubs, Dead Milkmen, ancient Rome, English football, field archery, reading, and hot dogs. He is terrible at chess. Carl has also written the historical horror novella The Darkness Out of Carthage, the graphic novel The Horror of Loon Lake, and a line of children's’ adventure books starring characters like Bigfoot Jones, Little Patty Vampire, and the Adventure Sibs.

In his free time, Carl hosts the Goadkicker Podcast, where he discusses nerd culture from a unique viewpoint. He also co-hosts Make Eternia Great Again, which celebrates the goofy fun to be had exploring the world of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. Most of all, he wishes people would find a way to help other people more often.
