Joe Peacock is an author, designer, developer, and culturenaut. He is the author of the Marlowe Kana series, as well as several older books that aren't really relevant anymore (but hey, go ahead and read them if you like). He's the owner and proprietor of the Art of Akira Exhibit (artofakira.com) and lives in Atlanta, GA with his cats and dogs. He copied and pasted this "About the author" from the "About the author" section on Amazon's page for his book Marlowe Kana Volume 1. He feels dirty having done it, but also, can't think of anything new or interesting to say. So it made sense and saved time. Please forgive him.
