Creative writer. Went pro in 2003 but got this idea upon completion of a first draft of a novel, which was then edited like gangbusters. It really took some emotional toughness to get a decent second draft. That was circa 1990. Major influences: I read tons when I was a kid and really couldn't care less what the authors name was as long as the story was good. Arthur C. Clark, Ann McAffery,

Short SF: iFiction: "The Future of Engineering" 1995

Major Influences: Narnia, Pern, Shannara, D&D, massive amounts of military SF including people like David Drake but I have forgotten most of their names: The story is more important than the name of the author except where the author's paycheck is concerned.  I still believe this, but now I'm 42 rather than 12.  Elves, and interstellar warfare.  TV SF: Star Trek & Next Gen, Movies: Of course the Star Wars movies.

Uranian Fiction

The Blog of an Author
This is a blog. It is often quite personal, covering daily life as it happens. There are times when it seems to have almost nothing at all to do with the author, but with other nouns.

I blog and do a little bit at Angie's Diary
