Meet the Author

I wrote about robots.


When I was a kid, my first story was about robots that looked like people: the only survivors of a world-wide nuclear war. What can I say? I grew up in the 70's.


Since then I've sculpted all manner of stories about all sorts of topics. Science Fiction and Fantasy still remain favorites of mine and, usually, what I can express in speculative fiction I'd rather not express in other formats.


I love short stories and am working on making this writing bug that I've harbored for so many years finally work for me.


Here goes nothing.

I really enjoyed this piece. It is well written, interesting and engaging. It is also well edited and not frustrating to read like some free ebooks. I would recommend this tale to friends and family.

This is a short story. The world in which it is set was engaging; the flavor is a feudal Asian society. If I see the writer has another book out, I would be interested in reading it.
