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, and a Christian against Christian Nationalism. I grew up in Richmond, Indiana. After high school I spent the next six years college — four in Missouri and two in Colorado. I’ve been in the latter since 1983, where I live a short distance from my three adult kids, a cool son-in-law, and three 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’m an avid learner, nature nerd (esp. minerals, fossils, and plants), sports stats geek, a publisher, writer, and editor. I have a BA in journalism, was an editor of the newspapers at both colleges I attended, and I’m one of those rare persons who’s remained in a career all my life in the area I studied in college. I’ve founded numerous publications since college, including a fun and rewarding publishing endeavor — a literary and arts magazine called Inklings — 16 issues in the 1990s — named after a writing group attended by C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkein and their friends in Oxford, England. Their writings and worldviews greatly influenced the publication’s mission and content. Here’s a PDF of the last edition of Inklings (click the link below the image to open in a separate window).
