About the Author

I was reading science fiction and fantasy since grammar school. One of my true desires was to write a science fiction story of my own, but I never did until I was in the United States Army and wrote The Mobius Strip. Years later The Mobius Strip came to life.
It was about an eccentric professor/inventor and a college student and their voyage across the universe. However once I wrote it I felt I had done what I always wanted to do, so The Mobius Strip was tucked away and forgotten.
In 2003 I saw an ad in a local journal soliciting sci-fi writers. The name of the company was Proxima Centauri Anthology, located in St. Petersburg, Florida. They wanted stories about androids and robots. I then became inspired to write again. I would stay up all night on weekends writing my new story. It was about a robot with a human consciousness that was deemed obsolete by the present society of Earth and that robot's struggle to maintain its existence. The title of the story was The Mouth of the Beast. I
also wrote another short story that my family thought was one of my best. It was about an astonishing beautiful female android that 'fell to earth'. The name of the story is Have you seen Alice?
Both The Mouth of the Beast and Have you seen Alice? were published along with my third story The Timeliner. You can call me Al is my 4th.
