Darius Vinesar

Darius graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a BA in English, where he learned to nurture and expand his love of writing. When he’s not working on cooking videos or the Mohanraj and Rosenbaum Are Humans Podcast, Darius writes fantasy and speculative fiction. And when he’s not doing that, (which he really should be doing more of), he’s reading or playing video games.
