Tyler Burnworth, Master of Arts in Fiction Writing
Tyler was born in Ohio, where he spent his formative years in a small village known to the local yokels as Oak Harbor. Although they say Ohio is for lovers, Tyler met his wife Lydia in Las Vegas, where they have marked their territory with two kids, two dogs and binge-athons of Cops and The Walking Dead for the past seven years.
Tyler's inspiration is drawn from stories that matter, that punch the gut and bleed emotion out of the audience, regardless of the medium. To name a few: The Star Wars films, The Walking Dead television show, the Invincible comic series, punk/metal music bands like Silverstein, Beartooth, Breaking Benjamin, and so much more.
Tyler's origin story begins in the United States Air Force and takes off with his life after service to this great country. After washing out of Pararescue, Tyler unwillingly developed an affinity for grease as an aircraft mechanic. It didn't take long to realize his brain was more geared toward storytelling than wrench turning.
Tyler attended Southern New Hampshire University from 2013-2015, where he earned his M.A. in English and Creative Writing, specializing in Fiction Writing.
Fiction writing has been a deep passion for Tyler since he had first been so moved by great stories as a child. The writing that he does, whether it is short stories, novels, comic books or screenwriting, is always focused on recapturing those same childhood experiences. Tyler will always write chasing a sense of awe, wonder, fear and excitement in hopes of giving those same experiences back to the world.
