About Coleman Trantham

Coleman E. Trantham was born in Waynesville, NC way back in 1962. He served in the U.S. Air Force as an Air Traffic Control Radar Tech from 1981 to 1985. Upon exiting the Air Force Coleman played bass in several bands. None of which were very good and made him realize he better get some sort of education because he liked to eat. This lead him to Western Carolina University and the Philosophy program where he got a BA in Philosophy and Religion and an BSed in English Literature. While all of this craziness was going on Coleman joined the local National Guard unit the 211th Military Police Company in Clyde, NC and was a cadet in the WCU ROTC program and an officer position with the 211th. In 2008 Coleman pursued a Masters at Fort Hays State University where he focused on 18th and 19th Century Literature and the novel as genre. Coleman is currently working on an MFA in writing through Lindenwood University
