Kyle A. Lohmeier
Kyle A. Lohmeier is a four-time award-winning journalist, novice hard-surface floorcovering installer and skilled pizza-maker. A native Michigander, Lohmeier moved to Ohio in 2010, two years after being laid-off from a bankrupt newspaper conglomerate that sold off the five newspapers he paginated every week. A prolific writer, Lohmeier has written for now-defunct webzines and has freelanced for American Handgunner Magazine. He writes two not-updated-frequently-enough blogs; one covering his relocation to Ohio, called “Quittin’ the Mitten,” and another encapsulating his life philosophy, called “Mind Your Own ****.” Both can be found at Blogger.com.
A self-described “Recovering Lutheran,” Lohmeier was raised a Christian and as a young adult was confirmed as a member of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. After several crises of faith, much introspective reflection and tons of independent study, Lohmeier came to take a broader, more academic view of religion and soon discovered that he found all of the world's various faiths equally implausible, and thus now subscribes to none of them.
Today, Lohmeier is happily married to his wife, Alicia, and they live in central Ohio with two cats and a “snow” corn snake. He’s presently working toward his goals of owning and operating his own pizzeria; catching more and bigger fish; getting down to 100 strokes over 18 holes of golf; marketing and selling his first novel, Dirge and developing ideas for his next manuscript.
