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.

Over the next five years, I wrote a series of 45 short stories and my first novel, all set in that Universe. I first looked into publication in 2001/02, but I was too short (50 pages).

"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.
Draconia: Fractured Dream (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Nov 12, 2010 02:46AM
Description: An excerpt from my second novel. The peace between Humans and Draconians have been sabotaged. Audwin and Varthikes, now considered traitors, have taken refuge at West Sun Range. This is a quiet moment between Audwin and Varthikes.

This book has absolutely nothing to do with actual dragons. Rather, it's about a race of slug-like creatures, the Cheela, who inhabit the crust of a dead neutron star and live at a much faster pace relative to Humans.
