I write mostly science fiction and fantasy. It calls to me. I started with more literary stuff [as I’m quite enamored with Jane Austen, Hesse, Tolstoy, and Thomas Hardy], but a dude with a jet pack and blaster kept yelling at me, “Hey you! Over here. Remember your awe for Dune and 2001?” Oh yeah. Vonnegut and Bradbury, too.
Join the adventure!
I call the Pacific Northwest home, a truly amazing place. If I have to stay on this planet, this is where I want to be.
I dream of seeing other worlds, so often peruse NASA and the like as some of the photos are close to being there – especially from Cassini and the Mars missions. Looking forward to what New Horizons and Juno will turn up in 2015.
When I watched Neil Armstrong walk on the moon as a kid, I became fascinated by space and what’s out there. I even tried Tang and freeze-dried ice cream. Fortunately, I found Pine Mountain Observatory to scratch that itch where I docent as a star guide every summer. Working at the observatory is fantastic and I love every awesome second of it. It and where I live inspire the words I write.
I share my home with my two cats and the Husband Unit. All love sci-fi. A great night is gathering on the couch to watch an old sci-fi movie. My one cat seems to have a crush on Spock. The pointed ears maybe?
I do confess to a continued obsession with Jane Austen. She’s awesome.
