I was born in Princeton NJ, and was raised in the small town of Columbia NC ( it's near the outer banks). I graduated with honors from Columbia High School and majored in Computer Engineering at North Carolina State University. I've held several great positions at some prominent institutions and found all of them to be very constraining and limited. In short, if you're an Engineer, and you're not working on the Enterprise, it really sucks (I actually had to do graphics for a 3/4in. screw once - true story). Anyway, I've been a sci-fi / fantasy / horror / action junkie since birth, and I have no hope of ever getting sober. I've been writing for a few years, but I'm only now starting to get into the publishing game - and it's a nasty little business. I've written a novel called " The Mathuzalem Factor " that's in the market right now at Createspace.com and Amazon.com.
I've been a fan of the genre forever, so some of my greatest influences are Robert E Howard, David Eddings, Anne Rice, Steven King, Isaac Azimov, and Stan Lee ( I love comics too ).
