Birthdate? May 10

When did you start writing? Fiction? A little over two years ago.

When and what and where did you first get published? My very first publication credit was way back in the 80's to "Owl" magazine (a pun, I believe!). My first "official" publication credit was a short story called Pinprick in the June 2006 issue of Forgotten Worlds.

Why do you write? Because I can't convince the words to leave me alone!

Why do you write Science Fiction and/or Fantasy? I seldom think about genre when I write. Genre figures into my process when I get to the stage of wondering "Now what do I do with this thing?".

Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story? I'm not sure I have a favorite, per se. But, one story that's stuck with me for a while is What You Pawn I Will Redeem by Sherman Alexie.
