Schwab recently penned seven epic fictional novels in a series, and is actively searching for a literary agent. When his imagination isn’t circling the far side of the Milky Way, in search of unusual life forms to contrast with the wacky human species, he is at his laptop researching & writing, playing Uber dad, walking his dogs, feeding chickens, strolling his gorgeous woods, or canoeing ponds on his north Florida homestead. He has six children with his wife of 24 years.
