I write science fiction and fantasy. I'm presently writing novels and novellas.

I've sold SF/F short stories to periodicals such as Marion Zimmer Bradley's Fantasy Magazine; Tales of the Talisman; Space Westerns; Golden Visions; and Sorcerous Signals. I have just over 110 total short story sales as of April 2015.

I've also written books and articles about Kansas history.

All of these help to make certain that, if I get blocked on one project, I have something else to work on. I've had this routine for years, so that helps keep writer's block away. The more you get into the habit of writing, the more you tend to stick to writing, and the less of a chance there is of you getting blocked.(less)

The History Book ...: SUDAN 57 276 May 07, 2016 07:33AM  
Steven Moffat
“We're all stories, in the end.”
Steven Moffat

Ray Bradbury
“Science fiction is the most important literature in the history of the world, because it's the history of ideas, the history of our civilization birthing itself. ...Science fiction is central to everything we've ever done, and people who make fun of science fiction writers don't know what they're talking about.”
Ray Bradbury

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don't we consider it his duty to escape?. . .If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we're partisans of liberty, then it's our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!”
J.R.R. Tolkien

Dr. Seuss
“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities.”
Dr. Seuss

Charles J. Shields
“The Kansas state motto, "Ad astra per aspera" - To the stars through difficulties. ”
Charles J. Shields, Mockingbird: A Portrait of Harper Lee, from Childhood to Go Set a Watchman
