Meet the Author

A freelance writer and a graduate in an IT discipline, I have always had a fascination with new technologies and their impact on society which is often showcased in my writing. By day I am a cubicle dwelling creature, staring at spreadsheets and lines of code, trying my best not to be swallowed up in the numbers staring back at me. I love using my abilities to solve problems and create solutions but often find myself frustrated at the lack of opportunity to use my creativity. The only remedy I have found is to periodically break away from a long stretch of keyboard mashing and coffee drinking to jot down a few ideas floating around in my mind. As a result of this, I stepped into writing stories in the evening using the notes I wrote throughout the day. Of course, this is all in between changing diapers and running around the house with a balloon tied to my butt pocket for my daughter to chase. Yes, I'm a dad and an exceptional husband - don't verify this with my wife though. I enjoy reading stories with characters that I can relate to. I read mostly science fiction and fantasy. Authors that I enjoy have been Stephen King, Terry Goodkind, Terry Brooks, George R. R. Martin, and Dean Koontz.

I came to really enjoy thiis book. Although there are soome editorial glitches, they do not detract from the effectiveness of the story and tthe manner in which the author wraps up this novel is most commendable. It is short but entertaining and at times hard to put down.
