Bio Pic

Inspired by Rod Serling's The Twilight Zone, Pontius Paiva writes fictional short stories designed around thought provoking concepts involving the bizarre and the fantastic.

Pontius was born, raised, and currently resides on The Big Island of Hawaii. He graduated from Honoka'a High School, marking the end of his formal education.

Uninterested in traditional classroom-education, he chose to pursue venues where he was allowed to express his creativity freely. Over the years, he has supported himself as a guitarist and lead vocalist for several rock, punk, and metal bands, as well as a tattoo artist, web designer, and artisan woodworker.

Pontius is currently writing his first novel while also working on a series of short stories and microfiction. His writing has appeared in Daily Science Fiction, 121 Words and 50-Word Stories.
