I write–mostly science fiction–and I think about things. Just about anything that’s on my mind can end up here.
I try to keep all the major sources for my ebooks (and some collections in print as well, through Amazon) in the right sidebar. If you’ve found a source that I have not included—ESPECIALLY if you’re in a market outside the USA—please click ‘TALK TO ME’ at the top of the page and give me the link so I can include it. I do not have a translator. I am entirely self-published and do not have that kind of backing. But if you read in English, I want to help you find my stories if you’d like to read them.
I live on a shoestring (figuratively, of course. Literally, that would be silly), with my wife and three kids and cat (occasionally two or three cats, depending on which felines in the neighborhood wander where in what season). I live on a shoestring because, at 42 years of age (in late 2012) I did indeed become the answer to life. Not life, the universe, and everything, as Douglas Adams would have it. But the answer to my own life. I figured out what I want to do when I grow up.
I want to write.
After discovering that, my wife hatched a nefarious plot, and I… well, I went along with it because it sounded neat, and insane, and most of all, it sounded PROMISING. It wasn’t just that I wasn’t enjoying what I was doing, although it increasingly didn’t excite me. My previous job had begun to hurt. Physically hurt.
So I (gulp) quit my job, which was very physical and draining, which made it very difficult to write and also was slowly destroying my body (I have degenerative osteoarthritis in one hip, advanced enough and eroded enough by my former work that I now routinely use a cane as I go about my daily business). My wife and I enrolled in university (she at the undergraduate level, and I at the graduate level). And I started to write as much as possible.
We are in a race against time. I am writing as much as possible, hoping that I can write enough and well enough to convince so many of you to buy my books that by the time we graduate I can afford to write full time, pay back student loans, and support my family.
If you’d like to help me, you can buy some of my books. I surely do appreciate it.
If you can’t afford to buy any books, read some of the free ones. It does help, because it bumps them up the ranks and makes all of my work easier for others to find. Especially if you review them, or simply tell a fellow reader that you liked them.
In any event: thank you for reading. Without you, I have no hope.
