When I was a kid, I wanted to get into space: like a zillion other kids. When I couldn't be an astronaut, I got a job in aerospace and computers. I helped on the MIRV, Nimbus, Apollo, and Viking missions.
Those experiences and my love of space and science fills my head with facts, ideas, and excitement. Eventually it bubbled over into stories screaming to be written. Space is vast, and we can not be alone. My mind is filled with questions. Who is out there? What do they believe? Will our cultures clash? Are they good or bad? Do they care about us?
Questions make us think and prompt us to share our thoughts. Thoughts are easy to express as a story, but good writing, poetry, art, or literature is a talent that few have. I lack that sklill: I am a mere story-teller, with knowledge, experience, and ideas to share. I hope you enjoy my stories, and adopt some ideas and insights for your own musings.
I think you would prefer to learn more about books, but if you want to check me out, please see my Bio and Other Cool Stuff links.
In fact, you are more likely to spot me sailing on the Chesapeake Bay in a catamaran called 'Tigger' with my family or friends.
No matter what your interest, I welcome your critiques of my stories...
