I am a New Yorker, transplanted to Arlington, Texas via Chicago. Retired now with two cats and Sandra, the finest woman a man could hope for, especially since I became disabled in a wheelchair. I do manage to have a great many friends, some of whom I know only via the internet.
It was Sandra who convinced me to write after observing the emails I sent her during our courtship. I have been at it now for ten years with moderate success, mostly with my short stories and articles. My novels do not sell very well because I do not fit the profile that publishers want to see, i.e., wealthy, celebrity or notorious. But my novels are the best I am capable of doing and I hope people read them in the future. Mostly I migrate between SF/F/H and humor with a heavy accent on the funnybone because I have learned not to take myself too seriously.
With Science Fiction I have achieved a new sub-genre with The Kaska Trilogy and Nadir. No human beings in the stories except for Kaska in the trilogy. Nadir is my finest conception so far and I have high hopes that readers will respond.
My newest works are the Warriors of the Rock series about Islamic terrorism and a philosophical novel called Tour.
Much of my energy is reserved for a special group of writers and wannabe authors whom I assist online at
http://s11.invisionfree.com/Writers_Association/index.php. We have produced five wonderful anthologies called Journey + The Artist Tree + Soaring + Satire of the Inanities + Epiphanies and Other Absurdities. We are working on several other projects for 2005. Most of these people work to sustain their families and have repressed talents they wish to explore when time is available.
Please look over my site and perhaps think about picking up one or two of my books. I promise you will not be disapponted.
