| Following a horrible break-up and a period of binge drinking, Wayne E. Popelka woke up to find himself enlisted in the US Air Force. Trained as a Spanish Linguist, Wayne served with distinction in Washington DC, San Antonio, Texas and sunny Monterey, California. After his enlistment, general malaise and an incident involving a lack of birthday cake motivated Wayne to seek work overseas.
Wayne secured a position as an Intelligence Analyst with the Iraq Survey Group. Wayne's letters home documenting his conquests, exploits, and overall melancholy have been collected as Somewhere in the Middle(2006 Sybaritic Press). Wayne now distributes his time equally between comic books, history, music, languages, bad first dates, and Texas Hold'em.
