Born and raised in Minnesota, educated at Moorhead State (Moorhead, MN) and North Dakota State University. I developed a passion for science fiction in junior high and have been hooked ever since. I started writing science fiction sometime around 1986 or so and about a dozen of my short stories were published in pioneering online magazines such as "Athene" and "Intertext."

I have been employed as a potato scientist at the University of Idaho since 1991. I currently serve on the editorial boards of two national trade journals and have written more than two hundred educational and informative articles for the popular press. I live with my wife and two cats (or is it the other way around?) in southeastern Idaho, where most of the potatoes are.

The most effective way I've found to get past these bumps, especially when working on a novel, is go to another part of the book and do some editing. Editing is way easier to do than creating new material. I find that this method gets me back "into" the writing process and often serves to put me back into creating mode and I can continue with the project. There is so much to do when writing a book that you can always find something useful to do.(less)

I also really enjoy working with words and molding them in such a way that the pictures in my mind come to life on the page.

Good news! I just pulled the trigger on "The Archeon Codex," book two in my "Guardians of the Galactic Sentinel" series. Available in Kindle and paperback formats on Amazon.

The adventures that began in "The Deimos Artifact" continue in book two with our intrepid heroes facing new challenges and new mysteries. There are also some new characters, several of them who are members of alien races.

Awesome!

This book was as headlong as the first two. Being a plant pathologist, I loved the science that Mr. Mayne uses to hurl you through his incredible adventures! Please write some more!

WOW AGAIN

I finished book one of this series earlier today and immediately picked up the second one. Mr. Mayne certainly writes excellent stories. His characters, action and suspense drive one to read his books cover to cover in one sitting!
