About Me

Portrait of a pale, middle-aged person with short brown hair and murky green eyes


I write compelling stories with science, adventure, ideas, history, love, the kitchen sink. I love coming up with stories that are set in faraway cities and countries, because then I *must* travel there, you know, for research. I live in Maryland with my reading-mad spouse, amazing rescue cats, and far too many books.

Find me on Mastodon, @nickypenttila@mastodon.online, and Bluesky, @NickyPenttila. Still trying to figure out TikTok, ha.
