I’ve been thinking I should do more with this blog than simply as a glorified billboard for my books. So let’s start at the top…
What’s there to say, really?
I’m a veteran retail wage slave with aspirations of literary adequacy.
was born in New York and currently live in Central Florida (aka The
Land That Time Remembered). I discovered science fiction at an early
age, growing up on
Star Trek, Lost In Space, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Captain Scarlet and The Thunderbirds.
I’ve always had an active imagination; I always played with the toys I
got for Christmas and my birthday but I had more fun playing with the
boxes. I actually started writing in 1975, putting together some truly
horrendous Space:1999 fan fiction. (Emphasis on horrendous.
Fortunately, all copies have been destroyed.) I started writing
seriously the day after I saw Star Wars. To be honest, I
wouldn’t be writing today if it hadn’t been for my tenth grade English
teacher. Writing is the only thing that keeps me sane, and I’m happiest
when I’m writing.
I’ve self-published/e-published (whatever the
correct term is), three anthologies, three single stories. I mostly
write science fiction and fantasy. All my stories take place in the same
timeline. This timeline stretches from just before the Big Bang, 13.8
billion years plus one day ago, to the year 7869. Because of this, it’s
quite possible that characters living in the same time period can appear
in each other’s story. In the case of my immortal characters, they
appear across time under different names.
My main goal when
writing is to entertain. I’m not looking to try and teach anything, nor
am I out to highlight society’s ills. That I leave to better writers
than myself. I’m writing for the person who wants to be distracted from
life for a little while.
I think that’s a pretty good start. Anyone have any questions? Share them here and I’ll be more than happy to tackle them.
