No genre is safe from me!
(OK, maybe Romance is safe)

One thing that bugs me is the accusation that I am too subtle. Too subtle? Is this even possible? I like to give my readers some credit: I always assume they are clever, educated, and have a good sense of humor...

I've has been writing fiction for over 20 years and recently published eight new titles, as well as a short story collection. Every book I write is exhaustively researched, I'm proud to say.

I have been a reporter and editor for many newspapers, and worked for The New York Times for well over ten years. Winner of the BBC Short Story Award.

But mystery solved: Now I know how 2005 vintage showed up on at my door in 2003... I was not a big fan of Austrian wines until now. Thank you! The paper bag was a nice touch as well... I'm quite inconspicuous laying here in the gutter.(less)

I admit I wasn't sure about The Ship in the beginning, but the characters and the story dragged me in and kept me reading. I like the narrator and the ship. The below decks crew and arborists were fascinat" Read more of this review »

"Unique and engaging for sci if fans

This is definitely a hard sci fi. I tend to enjoy softer sci fi so I wasn’t engaged quite as much. If hard sci fi is your jam, this is a 5 star.

“The bee is domesticated but not tamed.”
William Longgood

“I'd like to emphasize that when a reader finishes a great novel, he will immediately begin looking for another. If someone loves your book, it increases the chance that he or she will look at mine. So there is no competition between writers. Another writer's success helps build a larger readership for all of us.”
