My journey with Science Fiction began early. I came of age during the Space Race, but when, on September 12, 1962, JFK said, "We choose to go to the moon," I was already en route.
I had launched a rocket to the moon with Rick Brant in John Blaine's "The Rocket's Shadow." I had been to Mars with Heinlein's "Red Planet" and "Podkayne of Mars," had been a "Space Cadet," and trekked across the moon with Kip and the Mother Thing in "Have Space Suit, Will Travel." Edgar Rice Burroughs' Barzoom Epics with John Carter and the “Princess of Mars” likewise primed my imagination. I hope to live long enough to, like "The Man Who Sold the Moon," Delos D.

I guess the simple answer is that I don't deal with it. When inspiration comes, I write. I tend to write very very fast, almost without thinking about what I am writing, and often the events unfold in ways that surprise me. Sometimes I don't even know what happened until I go back and proofread it.
When inspiration dies, I go do something else.(less)

Setting your own schedule, stretching your brain to create plot twists and invent new ways of addressing ideas. Seeing positive response from one's readers always makes for a good day. Seeing critical responses from readers who obviously didn't read your book, and laughing at how stupid they seem. Seeing your book sell in the marketplace, even when the money is miniscule. Lots of good things.(less)

Two Short Stories

In addition to my books, I occasionally write short stories. I recently created a page on my web site where these stories are hosted, and freely available to read.

Short Stories Page

Two stories are presently there. A little horror/nightmare tale, "Silhouette Nocturne" and a Science Fiction short "The Spaceman"

The story begins, as in many fantasy tales, with a slave seeking escape. For about a half-second I was worried, but then the tale swerves from tired trope to the truly inspired.
