Life and CareerEdit
Hughes was raised, from the age of three, in the quaint and mostly blue-collar town of Spencer, Ohio, a town with a population so small that a 747 can carry them all. Spencer lies forty miles southwest of Cleveland. He was a high school state champion in wrestling, attended Ohio University on an athletic scholarship, and graduated with a business degree in Management Information Systems, a major he had little interest in and one chosen for no other reason than, at age 20, he hadn't the slightest idea of what he wanted to do. What followed were five wayward years earning minimal pay in , several of which he was fired from.
He started writing when he was 24 and, at age 27, left capitalism behind and moved to New York City to attend Columbia University’s School of the Arts. He graduated in May 2009 with an MFA in Creative Writing (fiction).
