About this Kurt Kremer

I’m a writer, husband, dad, technologist, gardener, home baker, son of a citizen scientist, brother to a fine carpenter, book lover, romantic, and a sort of non-prosletizing reformed jackass. I am writing a novel–I call it my young novel, because it’s the first, and the protaganists are young, and some may think the intended audience is young (I’m just trying not to exclude the latter). Some of this blog will journal the more interesting and less angst-ridden parts of that process. My kids (at least one a full fledged adult) influence me daily and I’ll write about them sometimes. My friends are writers, teachers, scientists, engineers, editors, electricians, sheet metal workers, park rangers, and endearing fools, and one incredible person who’s my lover and wife–they’ll appear here, too. If I’m desperate, I’ll find a default theme to cover. Some famous bloggers cover bacon–maybe because everything’s better with it. I might try tofu–I love bacon, but tofu is the food chameleon; having no flavor of its own, it can take on any character. I can’t tape it to my cats, but I might be able to work it like clay into the shape of a challenging dog or squirrel (or roadkill). But no soy bacon.

I have some short story awards from my college days, some regional and international technical writing awards from my professional days (still in those days), and a day job as a sort of data wrangler/content production and projects manager, and institutional memory for a small but nifty little software company on, yep, Park Avenue (in Portland, Oregon). My other blog, far more self-indulgent and now semi-retired, is Nuclear Frisson with BobPrice (and before that, a slice of silliness titled Wine Pairings for the Rest of Us, where I convinced a very small readership that whatever they drank was just fine).

Aside from this site, I can be contacted publicly via Facebook Twitter, and LinkedIn.

Hello, Kurt,

Glad to find you in this internetcarnation! Will be stopping by to visit!



Hey, you be sure to leave a link to your big brained lyrical blog with your comments, Vandana!

your blog makes me smile. I miss your funny quips and all-too-smart insights.

Cap’n Amy, I just learned that you have a blog (http://efficientbydesign.blogspot.com/), thanks to the miracle of WordPress comments mail–about what else, but organizing (something you were born to do, I think). Given that this is something that Debby and I are always struggling with, I’m going to subscribe and learn.

I don’t know why I called you Cap’n Amy, it just popped out. And sounded gentler than Dread Pirate Ames.
