1956 - I was born in Fort Belvoir, Virginia. Some other things happened that year, too. Moved around the country as a military brat before finding anchor in Pittsburgh, PA. Lived there 8 years, moved to southern West Virigina, graduated high school and enlisted in the Air Force. Gave it 21 years traveling the world, doing command and control. Retired in 1995 at Onizuka Air Station, Sunnyvale, California. Moved to Mountain View and joined a coronary medical device startup. Left there when Tyco bought it out to go to another med device start up before switching to computer security in 2000. That company was NetworkICE. ISS bought it and IBM bought ISS. I work now in IBM. Moved to Ashland, Oregon in 2005 to escape the teetering California economy. Live in Ashland now. I write speculative science fiction and fantasy. Have written seven novels but am now teaching myself how to revise and edit them. Figured out I wrote a million words between March 2010 and March 2011. Have six short stories published in webzines and small press. Want to write it all, you know? Other interests - politics, 90s sitcoms, the blues, Formula 1 and NASCAR racing, NFL football, taking care of my yard and cats. And beer. Like beer, wine, coffee. Oh, yes, and books, reading and writing. I love books. Love their smell, their feel, their words.
Watch this space. Books are coming. Sounds like a threat, doesn't it?
