About

Ian L Hayes facing the camera, wearing a light down jacket and jeans with a notebook holster strapped to one leg.
How I look on a typical day of writing.

I started blogging in 2003; after I graduated from St. John’s College with a Bachelor’s in Liberal Arts, I moved from place to place––New Mexico, Alabama, New York,––before finally settling in Portland, Oregon.

Most of my writing is speculative fiction, but I’ve branched out into nonfiction with personal essays, narrative nonfiction, and research into a wide variety of topics that interest me. My work has appeared on Tom Bihn, The ReBuilding Center, and Medium.
