Author bio

I am nearing critical mass on my WIP. When that happens, the story consumes me and all I can do is write until I finish. Usually happens between 50k and 60k, when I can envision all the remaining scenes fairly clearly. I just passed 43k earlier today and can feel the tension building. So if I disappear for a couple of weeks, that will be why. A literal rocket scientist, I was forced by the 2010 Ares cancellation to try and survive on writing. I write a variety of genres, including sci-fi (naturally), noir mystery, and western. Today, July 16, 2020 my short story "The Awards" was accepted by Daily Science Fiction for professional rate (8 cents per word) publication.
