Edward Muller is a programmer who lives and works in Vancouver, Washington along with his wife, Dr. Tera Rich, and a pride of three cats. He got interested in writing at age five when his Aunt Anne transcribed one of his spoken stories and showed him what his words looked like on paper. In his early teens he started watching Star Trek and soon migrated to reading Sir Arthur Clarke, Robert Heinlein, and Larry Niven. His first published work was the short story Charity's Case in the Autumn 2000 edition of Artemis Magazine. Since then he has been published in Analog, Flashing Swords, and, most recently, his short story Prizes appeared in the premiere issue of All Possible Worlds.
Ed originally trained to be a draftsperson and holds an AS Degree in Technical Drafting. Two weeks before graduating, he attended a demonstration of one of the first mass market Computer Aided Design software and realized the profession he'd trained for was now obsolete. He promptly went on to earn as BA in Mathematics and Computer Science. After twenty years of dealing with the rather capricious nature of employment in the Silicon Valley, he began working on a CPA, most recently earning an AA Degree in Accounting.
In addition to math, programming, accounting, cookie baking, and writing short fiction, Edward Muller teaches courses in how to write and submit short fiction to magazines. His one-hour presentation Overcoming the Odds has been well received by editors, fellow authors, and participants. He is currently adapting his daylong writing workshop, The 5 W's of Science Fiction and Fantasy, into an online webinar.
Ed is also known for having invented the Antimatter Calculator.

"There's a word for obsessive-compulsive writers," Ed tells people. "It is published."
