Orren Merton started writing fantasy and science fiction at an embarrassingly young age, mostly for his own amusement. In 2001, magazines, developers, and corporations began to pay him to write and edit music software related articles, manuals, and books. His Industrial rock group Ember After released their debut album, Grasping At Straws, in 2008. He now has a few fantasy and science fiction novels under his belt, and has no intention of stopping. He lives in Southern California with his family, pets, collection of sci-fi/fantasy memorabilia, and curiously large stuffed animal collection.

If…moreI'm not an expert on writer's block, since I rarely get it. It seems to me, writer's block usually comes from getting stuck on the "what" or "how." If you have a solid outline, treatment, or other kind of template, that helps with the "what." As far as "how," if you don't have the feeling for a given scene and you're beating yourself up about it, move on. Write "and this will be the great scene where I explain how the protagonist gets from here to there" or whatever, then come back to it.(less)
Orren Merton For me, it's creating entire universes that don't exist and populating them with beings and stories.

Last year, I only got to attend San Diego Comic-Con (or Comic-Con International, or SDCC, take your pick) briefly, because Luna was sick and getting worse. This year, pets are healthy, we’ve got pet sitters staying for the entire length of the show, so we get to leave today and stay as long as we want!


I’ll be posting to my various social media accounts over the con, so if you want to keep up w...
