Norman grew up just north of Abilene in Anson, Texas. During his senior year of high school, he interned for the local newspaper, The Hamlin Herald, before graduating and moving to Denver to attend college. While he intended to become a mechanical engineer, after a year he did a 180 and decided his passion was writing and journalism. He is currently attending the Metropolitan State University of Denver online in pursuit of an English degree.
Norman is a Spurs fan through and through. In his spare time, you can find him playing basketball, both reading and writing novels, and watching movies with his family and his fat cat, Meatball.
