About the Author
Fantasy, historic fantasy and science fiction writing have always been a passion for him ever since his mother read him the Dragonlance Chronicles as a bed time story in his youth. Since then he has been an avid reader and writer in the genres and has spent countless hours creating stories and worlds with his family and friends. This love of unknown peoples and cultures led him into a degree in anthropology where he learned how to create cultures that had the weight of reality in them.
History and culture has always been a passion of his and it is through an act of participant observation that he was dragged to his first Steampunk convention. Upon interacting with the people, the costumes and the general atmosphere, he fell in love and has been avidly writing and creating characters and costumes in the genre ever since.
This twist of fate is not all together unheard of. Mr. Drake grew up participating in Live Action Role Playing Games and helping to build and run local haunted houses where he learned to be creative with props and costumes. Soon after he began to dabble in writing and spends most of his time in the creation of something interesting and very possibly insane.
Since that time, Ming has had short stories published in several publications and is publishing his first full length novel, a tale of high fantasy and daring through the stars.
