Hello, I’m Chance Nix from Dallas, Texas. Growing up I loved to write, play baseball, and always had a deep love for the American Flag. I set forth at 17 to join the workforce after high school. Didn’t like it, so I joined the United States Marine Corps. This was in 2003 and the war in Iraq was starting to heat up. I loved the Corps. I was 19 years old when I earned my title of Marine. At 20, I was a combat veteran of the second battle of Fallujah. By 22, I was a purple heart recipient and the proud lead driver for the convoy’s scout element.
I came back to the world of the big PX and apple pie. Met a girl, fell in love, got discharged, and then married in only two short years. Two more years later (by the time the Texas Rangers saw their first World Series), we welcomed our son, Damien. I did a play-by-play for him while he was in her stomach. It’s been a good life. My wife Jennifer loves to draw and I love to write. Together, we have made two eBooks that are online. I write them, she draws the covers, helps edits, and puts the whole thing together properly. I have found that writing fictional stories has helped me to deal with my problems.
By now the Rangers have lost two straight World Series appearances and I’m out of my beloved Corps, working in a hospital.
I’m 30 years old, a Veteran, full-time student, full-time employee, full-time husband and father, inspiring writer, still love baseball, and have no idea what in the world I am doing. Civilian life is confusing and a whole different beast than the Corps, which is what my blog is mainly about. It’s about dealing with the effects of war in the 21st century and still trying to be accepted by society. I get lonely, I get angry, I get sad, but I am making it in my own strange way. I will be as honest as I can with this. I may omit names to protect people but feel free to ask questions and enjoy.
The Runner and Villains are available on Amazon and anywhere ebooks are sold. Go check them out and look at the cover art done by my wife.
