What's there to say, really?

I'm a long-time retail wage slave with aspirations of literary adequacy.

I was born in New York and currently live in Central Florida (aka The Land That Time Remembered). I discovered science fiction at an early age, growing up on Lost In Space, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Captain Scarlet and The Thunderbirds. I've always had an active imagination; I always played with the toys I got for Christmas and my birthday but I had more fun playing with the boxes.

This feeling is magnified when I'm watching programs about UFOs...almost as if it's reminding me of something that happened when I was young.(less)

Changing Course

There are five first draft projects that I have been working on, four shorter works - "Raven," "Stranger," "My Soul to Keep" and "Upon a Far Distant Shore," and the novel Under the Dark of the Moon. Progress had been slow but I had been moving forward on all the projects.

Until this week, that is.

This was a fun read. The characters, the flawed but still badass assassin, and the brooding, centuries old vampire, were both engaging. An entertaining read.
