Get to know John...

Birthdate?I just turned 36.

When did you start writing? I started writing seriously around 2001, though I had fooled around with it a few times before that.

When and what and where did you first get published? My first sale was to the 2005 NASfic anthology, Northwest Passages: A Cascadian Odyssey. I was psyched - there were some great stories by some very well known authors.

Why do you write? It beats thinking about the fact that I'm going to be a corporate drone for the rest of my life.

Why do you write Science Fiction and/or Fantasy? It's what I enjoy reading the most. 

Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story? I guess if we're talking about short speculative fiction, my favorite author is definitely Roger Zelazny. Favorite short from him....probably The Furies, which I picked up in a collection a lot of people are familiar with, Four for Tomorrow.

What are you trying to say with your fiction? Nothing in particular. I like to think people will be entertained.

If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say? "Worms gotta eat, too."

Do you blog? Where?
