I pen science fiction, cyberpunk and free-verse poetry. I post a great deal of my work on my website.

I enjoy creating characters and then seeing how things play out together. A plot emerges, and I see where it goes. Sometimes this leaves me in the precarious position of writing “by the seat of my pants,” but usually it turns out okay.

For me, writing fiction is about exploring possibilities and answering “What-Ifs.” I’m ever so pleased that you’re here. Take a look around.

Fishing For Mammals is a two-scene flash fiction based on a novella that I'm currently rewriting. I'm really enjoying the process of polishing what I wrote so many years ago. The entire process really brings to light how much a person can change.

Fishing For Mammals may end up being an excerpt from the new novel, or may even become the opening scene. Read more of this blog post »

Let Me Go: Alzheimer's Lament (Poetry)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: This is a poem that I wrote in 2006. I don't remember what I was doing at the time the inspiration struck, nor do I remember exactly what the inspiration was. I am not a poet. This is my only poem.
