Author has written 6 stories for Combat!, and Laramie.

Scientist. It's what I do and much of what I read. Geology in all its aspects and astronomy/ planetary geology. Applied chemistry can be fun (really, how many people can say they have a 1940s book on the Chemistry of Powder and Explosives in their personal library?) Autobiography and biography, especially those that feature aviation figures or explorers. History books, mostly WWII. A fair smattering of roadside geology books and nature guides. A good adventure or mystery story.

When I bring real people or facts into my stories, it's because I know about them from things I've already read or know first-hand and can back it up with research.

I attempt to keep the jargon and idiomatic phrases appropriate to the time. Nothing worse than having a character from the 1800's, 1940s or 1980s doing that "cleansing breath" when that wasn't even a "thing" back then. You just took a deep breath and moved on (or not).

Fanfiction advises writers to use proper grammar and spelling. I do not always write in complete sentences or use textbook grammar. I write as I think my characters would talk or think. I use a lot of idiomatic phrases. That's how people talk.

Sometimes my imagination takes me to places that are dark, and surprising to me as I am not geared that way. Then I get stalled.

It's hard writing fiction. Harder than writing fact, writing up experimental results, or writing up new discoveries.

I appreciate people reading my work and look forward to comments as they help me be a better writer (hopefully).

It's not the Raptor DNA by SkullsandDuggery reviews
"Her hateful gaze was all too familiar, almost a mirror when he saw past the crimson color, and slit pupils." Because we all know the scientists of Jurassic World had proven themselves incapable of exercising discipline when it came to temptations. Why would it be any different with creating the Indominus?

Threshold Shift by Macx reviews
sequel to Tainted. Nothing about working at Jurassic World is routine. Especially when you're the alpha of a raptor pack. Owen Grady would never make the mistake to think every day is the same. He also didn't want students traipsing around his enclosure. Trouble is waiting in the wings. He just knows it. And then there's the rumor about poachers on Isla Sorna. Just wonderful.
