I'm a writer of science fictions who hasn't yet had that big break. Came close a couple of times in 2014 but I'm still angling for it. A native Kansan, I live in the lone stronghold of liberalism, sanity and erudition. My childhood was filled with Robert Heinlein, Uncanny X-Men, The Twilight Zone and as much science fiction and horror and fantasy as I could get my hands on.
I've played music and written and drawn my own stories for as long as I can remember.
In 1999 I began making mini comics in an effort to break into that industry. I got some painful but true advice that I was hurting my stories by drawing them myself and that's when I shifted over to strictly prose.
I've written two books for Actionopolis/Agent of DANGER and there's more coming from them and me eventually. Both will be series of at least three books.

I came close to having a short story accepted in a major science fiction magazine in 2014. Though I didn't make it in, the editor gave me great feedback and told me to submit again. A friend of mine who is also a professional editor, read my novel and told me it was more than a novel. Turns out it was actually an outline for THREE novels.
The Cold Distance will be self-published in August 2015. Watch my blog for details.
