I am a science fiction writer living in the Pacific Northwest (USA) with a wife and a cat, both of whom seem willing to let me stay.

Having unexpectedly found myself in my seventh decade of life (my sixties) and in declining health, I decided to retire from Boeing and become a writer of speculative fiction. It did not take me long to realize I did not have the skills and tools I needed to write fiction; at least, not good fiction.

I took some writing courses, read some books, attended some writer’s conferences, wrote a bunch of short stories (even published two of them), and wrote three draft novels for practice. I decided my third practice novel was good enough to publish, so I did. The Emissary is available from Amazon. My second novel, The Eye of Crasis, came out in June 2022. It is not a sequel to The Emissary, though I am working on a sequel tentatively titled Qilin, which I hope to publish Winter 2023.

Thanks for stopping by. Be kind; do good.
