Why?

In response to Linda's questions in the first blog entry, and using them as a guide, I'll attempt to offer some insight into why I do what I do:

Status on current projects: At present, I have a couple of balls in the air. First, I'm working with my co-writer, Kevin Dilmore, to wrap up a Star Trek novella which will be published next year.

Along with that, I'm editing a science fiction antholo Read more of this blog post »

Janice Happy New Year.


Janice You're welcome. Spock was one of my favorite Star Trek characters, and I loved Sarek, but Scotty will always be my favorite of the Star Trek characters. Have a great day.

Thank you!


Janice Love the Spock video.


Janice Thank you much for "friending" me. I've loved Star Trek since the 60s, and Scotty was always my favorite. Also thank you so much for your service in the Marines. My last foster uncle had been one, and served in Iwo Jima. I never asked him about it, but he did show me his purple heart...I still miss him.


Timothy Big fan your books love the vanguard series.


Dayton Thank you for the kind words, Linda!
