I’ve been writing serious and light-hearted sci-fi, high-concept SF dramas and short stories since the 1990s. My novels have earned me an average 4.4-star rating on Amazon, and I’ve received acclaim for both my novels and my self-made cover art.
I’ve been a fan of science fiction all my life: My formative years were filled with NASA’s manned space program accomplishments, the science fiction TV and movies, and the environmental movements of the 1960s and 70s. I developed an early devotion for science, the environment and the future, as well as a passion for the technology that created the special effects in my favorite movies and TV shows.
As a writer I was a pioneer of the ebook format, championing it and selling my books online in the 2000s before most readers (or publishers) had even heard of ebooks, and resulting in a New York Times interview for an article on ebook formats. My novels and the commentary on this blog highlight my interests in technology, humanity, nature and the future.
I also spend a lot of time trying to find new ways of getting the word of my novels out to you, the readers. And I love to talk about science and SF in books, television and movies. A lot. I hope you enjoy my work.
