About Jamie Alan Belanger
Jamie Alan Belanger started programming computers when he was about six years old. He earned a bachelor's degree from the University of South Florida in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics; disciplines he employs at his day-job, where he works on payroll software used by governments and schools across the nation. He devotes most of his spare time to Lost Luggage Studios, where he is a programmer, writer, editor, publisher, graphic artist, photographer, and more. In short, Jamie is a workaholic who is rarely more than two days away from having a meaningful conversation with his toaster. His hobbies include WW2 and computer history, artificial intelligence theory, cooking, beer, nature, photography, and designing worlds he'd rather live in.
Titles By Jamie Alan Belanger
Neil Roberts, a computer programmer for the largest security software provider on the planet, breaks his normal routine when he stops in a bar and witnesses a murder. His once boring life changes drastically when, through a twist of fate and a realization that his life has no purpose beyond his job, he leaves the scene of the crime and becomes a prime suspect.
Neil's life then shifts from protecting people and companies to becoming that which he most despised... a hacker.
But the memories are just data stored in a computer system, and one day a hacker learns how to steal those memories. Implanting them into the brains of interested buyers is just as easy, and quite profitable.
Meet Jeremiah Jones: visionary, entrepreneur, sociopath.
Name your dream.
Name your price.
In this volume, the Greater Portland Scribists explore these bonds. Whether trying to save a childhood retreat from corporate interests, reuniting with old friends, returning home for a final goodbye, or trying to cope with a dear one who won't depart, these tales are about the twisting journeys of our relationships. Location, context, and pasts are irrelevant--it's the people with whom we connect who help shape our experience on this world.
