Brad Hicks here, founder and editor of this space. A few quick things about me. I’m an avid learner, nature nerd, sports-stats geek, publisher, writer, editor, business owner, and a Christian trying to pay attention for fleeting aha! moments of redemption and paradox. I grew up in Richmond, Indiana. I’ve been in Colorado since 1983, where I live a short distance from my adult kids and unadult grandkids. We see a lot of each other, which, I’d have to say, is what gives me the most joy and purpose in my life.
I finished college with a journalism degree and I’m one of those rare persons who’s remained in a career all my life in the area I studied in school. I’ve started numerous publications over the last 35 (or so) years, including a fun and rewarding publishing endeavor — a literary and arts magazine called Inklings that I published in the 1990s. Here’s a PDF of the last edition of Inklings (click the link below to open in a separate window).
I hope you enjoy the conversation in Louder For Malchus, maybe offer feedback, maybe Follow. I know, this is all pretty surface-y stuff about me. My writing reveals the reals, the ideas that roil my blood, and the trials, traumas, and mercies that have merged to define me. Get on now. Read me.
