At age six, M. Duda read his first book: Dr. Seuss's Green Eggs and Ham. By ten, he was being caught by his parents reading Call of the Wild or some other classic by the hall light. More often than not, he chose the library over recess—he couldn’t help himself.
Today Duda prefers the works of George R. R. Martin to Ivanhoe. He lives in Ohio with his wife, Laura, for whose patience during his artistic endeavors he’s eternally grateful.
