    Bill Viau

    Bill grew up a few blocks from the roaring rollercoasters of Canobie Lake Park in Salem, NH, and spent his teenage years writing elaborate histories for D&D campaigns he ran with friends. A bachelor’s in theatre history and literature, followed by a master’s in teaching, led him back to his hometown to teach performing arts and humanities for the next eight years. Eventually, Bill’s lifelong passion for writing brought him into the private sector, where he now applies his talents as a Content Writer for Market Veep. When he’s not moonlighting as a Shakespearean actor, Bill can usually be found cruising on his motorcycle or playing hide and seek with his identical twin daughters.
