Damon Alan was born in Columbus, IN in 1966. He grew up in different southern Indiana locations. He was always the geek in the crowd, developing an early love for science fiction. He could recite many lines from Star Trek, and hungrily consumed what passed for sci-fi TV in his youth. In adulthood he tried several different paths at college before finally realizing he didn't want that structure.

After leaving the Air Force in 1990, he returned to school but also applied to the FAA to be an Air Traffic Controller. In 1992 that became reality, and Damon became an ATC at the Indianapolis Air Route Traffic Control Center. Reti ...more

I've been kicking around the idea for WWII Fantasy for a while, and your compliment on the effort has inspired me to get with it. Book 2 will be called Secrets of Axum and I believe I'll have it ready before the end of May. The cover is done, the story is in my head, it's just a matter of typing it out, editing, then giving it to my editor so it's a product you'll like. Thanks again!(less)

Even if you go back and delete it later, once you get that first sentence out you're on the move. I find that I often can't stop once I get going. A few days ago I edited for seventeen hours. Fortunately my wife is a busy RN manager and I have plenty of time to do this. If that still doesn't work, talk to a writer. One that cares about your work and will motivate you.(less)

This is a good book! It hits all the right space opera tropes, has lots of good speculative science in it, and has the apocalyptic feel that you often need at the start of a good series. I enjoyed it quite a bit.
