Discovered I enjoyed writing when given a creative writing assignment in 11th grade (1985 Yikes!). Only dabbled for last 20 years.
Took Sophmore and Senior level Fiction Writing classes at NCSU in 88-90 time-frame (senior level taught by Hugo and Nebula Nominee John Kessel).
I have come up with some fun universes to play around with, but have a hard time coming up with stories to stick there...
My first fan-fic, Magic: A Chronicle of Mimasu is the first story I've done in 20 years that I actually 1) really enjoyed writing, 2) had a real sense of where it was going, 3) could actually keep pace with while writing. (I hate when my mind is on the epilogue, and I'm still typing chapter 3)
Interests and influences:
Science Fiction (Star Trek, Babylon 5, Dragonriders of Pern, Stargate, Independence Day)
Fantasy (Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, Chronicles of Narnia)
also Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan series
Other (Jimmy Buffett, Boston - the band - not the city, Sailing, Mountains: hiking and camping)
Note: Soundtracks (particularly John Williams Soundtracks) make awesome accompaniment for writing!
You are only as young or old as you believe yourself to be!
To my fans: Thank you so very very much. Like everyone, I enjoy praise when I receive it. But what I treasure are critical reviews that help me to improve my writing!
Magic: A Chronicle of Mimasu - finished but un-edited(maybe someday).
Tales of the Golden Age: The Hagarathan's Curse - WOW, I have been asked for permission to translate this into Chinese!! (yesyesyesyesyes!!) Please ask me if you would like to translate any of my stories into your native language.
First Do No Harm - This one is in a holding pattern for the moment. Lets just say that it is TOO detailed and I have to be in the perfect mood to write Trek.
Threadscored Hopes, Scorched Dreams - Like popcorn, this one keeps percolating... slooooowly
Lady In Waiting - A light romp that finds our favorite Pevensie Junior King wearing feminine formalwear. A bit of Circus for the masses whilst the bread bakes. -On indefinite hold
What I am reading!
David Weber's Safehold series. Nimue Alban's been dead 900 years, unfortunately when your Dad gives you a PICA for your birthday even death in the last gasp of virtually your entire species isn't permanent. I'm in the middle of book 4 (out of 5 current) and already have fanfic ideas boiling up! =D Of course there's no Safehold or David Weber section, so I'll probably end up posting it under Honor Harrington when it is done. Fanfic hint- It develops from the line in book 1 Off Armageddon Reef "The last Christian in the universe was an android."
