m. p. hopcroft
M.P. Hopcroft is an author and retired clerk in Portland, Oregon in an apartment next to a small forest with entertaining squirrels in it. He is a great lover of sports and sports games despite a complete lack of athleticism. He is a member in good standing at NIWA (Northwest Independent Authors Association) and a regular at events such as Orycon. He is one of those rarities who identifies as both a "filker" and a "Gamer." In fact, some of his earliest publications were songs about things ranging from Star Trek characters to global tragedies. As with most authors of his generation, what he read or watched was an influence on his writing, much to the annoyance of his first English professor.
In addition to his own writing, forum posting is where much of his writing energy is both collected and expended.
