Meet the Author

I write about a future with endless wonders and fantastic technologies. Places where fulfilling lives are ahead for anyone brave enough to dream of greater things to come. I wrote my first short story, that was not a homework assignment, at the age of 10. Most likely it was the result of growing up as a "Base Brat" courtesy of the USAF. I always had a different outlook on things. I have lived in the following States of the USA: VA, TN, MT, MS, IL, TX and have visited about 35 or so of the other States. I have also lived in Okinawa, Kuwait, Vietnam, Puerto Rico, Cuba and Saudi Arabia. My most memorable vocations have been; US Marine, Radiochemist and Chemistry Shift Supervisor. My hobbies are also quite diverse; Amateur Astronomy, Astrophotography, Philately, Numismatics and Amateur Philosophy (I say what I think). I live with my wife Patricia, and my imaginary time machine in Rock Spring, Georgia. Look for the second novel in my 'Earth Steps Forth' series - 'Power of the Cross' in late 2013.

This story had a lot of potential, but the writing just wasn't professional. I'm not a critic, so I couldn't tell you the detailed reasons for this. Nevertheless, I finished the story just to see what happens and I don't regret the $2 I spent, but I now realize that an editor must do a lot more than correct spelling and grammar.
