Fantasy and Science Fiction Writer
Dragons, space ships, and local history—oh, my! Where will my imagination wander next? You may find clues on this site.
I have been a writer for a long time—I just didn’t know it. As a professional educator, I spent years sharing my understanding of mathematics and science with my students. It turns out writing in many ways is like teaching.
When I taught, I worked to explain the subject in a way my audience understood. When challenged to do a history of our local community band, I discovered the fun of explaining things with the written word. Plus, I never experienced any of the interruptions of the regular classroom. (I never notice when my readers lay my books aside.)
I’ve always been a reader, an omnivorous one. Although I have read at least something in most genres, my taste in fiction has always leaned to science fiction and fantasy. Therefore, my fiction works have starships or dragons in them. I write what I like to read.
