"I'm a mouse in a mechanical man's body." Okay, that was Pinky and the Brain, not me.

I am a writer, archaeologist, anthropologist, and geologist. I currently live in New Mexico, where all the cool kids hang out, with too many cats. (is there such a thing?)

Like most authors, I've had an eclectic career path. I've worked as a retail gofer, a food service monkey, brute laborer, a rennie, a writer for the RPG industry, and many other rewarding jobs that didn't pay enough to feed me or my cats.

I really love archaeology, and no, I haven't found any tombs with ancient evils lurking. I plan to keep it that way.

I will not dig on Mars, and I will NOT go to Zahadoom.

I didn't before, but I do now. Thanks for asking!

I'll be updating it regularly with snippets, talking about the creative process, and interesting science news. I admit that I may be biased toward news about archaeology.
