In the mundane world, Eve Ocotillo plays a scientist. She escapes from the grind by conjuring tough and conflicted men and then throwing them at each other in romantic and not-so-romantic situations. Her stories range from alternate history to contemporary to science fiction and are influenced by her interest in diverse social issues, her fascination with the natural environment, and her fundamentalist upbringing. She doesn’t much like TV, but her Xbox and a new RPG can suck her in for weeks at a time.

That's my book cover blurb. :) I write to feed my id and to learn a little more about myself, my values and belief systems. I believe that my strengths as a writer are in world-building and in strong, complex characterization. Nearly all of m

I have a list of old projects I'd like to get in ebook format, but I'm slow at this and have a couple other projects ahead of Esperanza. I have heard that there are services that will convert web stories into 'books' that will allow you to read them the way you prefer. You may be able to find out how to do this by asking on a reader's forum. Thanks so much for your interest!

“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."

“All struggles are essentially power struggles. Who will rule? Who will lead? Who will define, refine, confine, design? Who will dominate? All struggles are essentially power struggles,and most are no more intellectual than two rams knocking their heads together.”

John Rogers

“There is only one way to read, which is to browse in libraries and bookshops, picking up books that attract you, reading only those, dropping them when they bore you, skipping the parts that drag-and never, never reading anything because you feel you ought, or because it is part of a trend or a movement. Remember that the book which bores you when you are twenty or thirty will open doors for you when you are forty or fifty-and vise versa. Don’t read a book out of its right time for you. ”
Doris Lessing

message 2: by Oco

Oco Yah, had to bite the bullet when I got the short published and choose a full name. Well. Didn't have to, but thought I should.

I do wish that GR let me set a nickname to use for posts. :( It seems to force you to use your 'first' name. I think I'd rather continue to be known as 'Oco'.

Hi! :)


Mandapanda Hi Eve! (Ocotillo) Love the expanded name.;)
