My Story (so far)...
I'm a former IT Systems Analyst with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from West Virginia University. How I went from art to computers is a differnt story but, suffice to say, about thirty years ago, I found another creative path to walk - writing fiction.
Though I grew up drawing and painting, my relationship with creating visual art was one of love/hate or bi-polar. I'd furiously work on a painting or an etching for weeks and then do nothing for months.
With writing, I've found my true passion. It's like painting with words, creating something out of nothing. I try to write every day, reveling in the worlds, settings, characters and situations I envision. I love to tell stories.
Inspired initially by comic books, James Bond, Edgar Rice Burroughs and Andre Norton, I've sold my short work to various online and print venues including:
Penumbra SQ Magazine
Tower of Light Fantasy Raw Terror
Anotherealm Abaculus III
M-Brane SF Triangulations
Afterburn SF Twisted Cat Tales
Noctober Shoreline of Infinity
The first 3 volumes of my SPIRIT WINDS QUARTET - The Sixth Precept, Warriors of the LIght, and Orcus Unchained, are published by IFWG Pubishing. All are available in print and ebook format.
I've also self-published two fantasy novellas - REUNION AT OLAN and THE FINAL LESSON.
"A Concerned Citizen," which is a companion short story to THE SIXTH PRECEPT, is also available online in ebook format as are other of my short work.
Thanks for your interest and support!
