Regis Schilken spent thirty years as a teacher and administrator with the Pittsburgh Public School System. His interest in writing and storytelling began with the volumes of story related materials he created for his middle school students.
At Saint Vincent College, Regis majored in theology and philosophy. To this day, he still remains obsessed with that shadowy realm where science and philosophy overlap, always searching for the ultimate meaning of life including the enigma of being itself.
Regis has had several articles published in a national magazine and a short story published in Dan River Anthology. He has completed five novels and several screenplays. His writing reflects his search for meaning, of both good and evil, in bizarre and terrifying ways as evidenced in his most recent novel: You Know When.
For Blogcritics Magazine under Sci/Tech, Regis writes a series of articles titled: Science and Being. In addition, much of his free time he spends reading and writing book reviews.
Currently, Regis lives with his wife Jennie in Bethel Park, a municipality just outside the city of Pittsburgh. They have three children, one beautiful granddaughter--Haven, and two very handsome grandsons--Milan and Rowan.
Regis plans to continue writing until he can no longer push the keys on his keyboard or remember what they are for.
