About Me

I’m a writer of Speculative Fiction novels and short stories. I’ve written many novels and published many short stories.

I work as a software QA Analyst and write fiction in my spare time.  I have maintained a blog about writing and technology since 1998. I’ve done such diverse jobs as being an assistant cameraman for indie films, building munitions for the Air Force and testing multi-function printers for HP.

I try and post sometimes. Topics range from my thoughts on Science Fiction, writing, using Linux and model building, with a bit of my personal life tossed in for good measure. I live in beautiful Boise, Idaho with my wife Laurie, and our sons.

Unlike most computer geeks, I actually enjoy watching baseball and football. I have been a Cubs fan (Go Cubs Go!) since the 1980’s and a Boise State Football fan (Go Broncos!) for the past 20 years.

I’m a member of the Speculative Fiction Writers Group in Boise, the Association of Independent Authors, and the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. I’m also a member of the Boise Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol.

My favorite genres are Science Fiction and Mystery. I also read non-fiction science books, Military History and books on writing. I’m an Amateur Radio Operator and I can sometimes be found on Boise repeaters answering to W0PHT.

I use Linux at home and Windows at work. I’m a huge supporter and user of Open Source and Free Software. I don’t talk much about politics or religion on the blog, but you can assume that I’m an independent voter and a skeptic.

Send me an email and let me know how you like my novels. Tell me what parts you loved and perhaps more importantly, what you really didn’t care for. I aim to please.
