About this author

I was born and raised in Fremont, and I still live there. I am the youngest of seven children--three brothers, three sisters.

I grew up around science fiction, particularly Star Trek. By 1994, when I was 8, I already had a well developed interest in science fiction, and I started collecting Micro Machine spaceships. With these Micro Machines, I came up with my own Star Trek adventures. A few years later, I decided to write these down.

"Wall Between Worlds" (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Jun 08, 2011 05:24PM
Description: I wrote this mainly as an experiment. The experiment being to write a story as if one of my dragons (from a series of novels I'm working on, which are not in first person) were telling it. Also, at the time, inspired by the first two minutes or so of the Disney movie, [b]Dinosaur[/b], I was wondering what it would be like to hatch from an egg.
