Birthday? 2/4/1976
 
When did you start writing? I got serious about writing 3 years ago, after many decades of reading genre fiction.
 
When and what and where did you first get published? My first published story was 'Lost Dreams', a 2300 word tale, to infectiveink.com in 2012. http://infectiveink.com/?p=512
 
What themes do you like to write about? To me, themes come from tangential thinking. I don't try to limit myself and find that I do span the range of the human condition. I like to try new things, hard things, that I'm not fully cognizant of - doing so ramps my sense of wonder.
 
What books and/or stories have most resonated with you as an author? Why? How do these stories and their characters find expression in your work? The golden age of science fiction has always been my favorite. I love the fast pace and action dominating styles of those short novels. I find that my own voice tends to bend in that direction.
