Troy loves spending time reading, writing, camping, and drinking local craft beer. He is an English Department Head at an alternative online school, and lives with his wife Laura, his newborn baby Alice, and their four cats (Jax, Maya, Cali, and Fuzz Lightyear) in St. Petersburg, Florida. Troy has spent the last decade and a half moving and traveling around the world. His journeys have brought him from teaching English in South Korea, to living in a tent in the Alaskan wilderness for five months, to swimming and living on sunny San Diego beaches. These diverse experiences greatly influence his writing and make him even more appreciative of the family around him now. Troy’s book, Hardly Harding, is available on Amazon, and his published short stories can be found at troybernardo.com.
