After a senior high school year as an exchange student in Sweden, he attended several Midwestern universities, graduating from the U of Nebraska School of Journalism.

“Reading Zenn Scarlett is like venturing into a gargantuan alien animal in one of the in-soma pods Zenn uses to provide veterinary care: delightful, bizarre, and occasionally terrifying.”
– Mike Mullin, author of Ashfall
