I have been writing for 26 years and author everything from fiction (mostly Science Fiction), to poetry, to non-fiction articles on a wide range of subjects
Influences in fiction are mainly, Robert Silverberg, Isaac Asimov, R.A. Laferty, and Rod Serling. Poetic influences are Edgar Allen Poe, TS Elliot, and Robert Frost.
There are no real influences in my non-fiction. My non-fiction is written because I feel there is a need or desire for people to learn and experience the things I have found out through research, study, and living life.
