When did you start writing?

I started writing seriously in 2013, and I picked up a love for writing short stories in 2017. Before that, I was the  kid who finished writing full-length novels and professionally self published and sold them in middle school. I can’t speak for the quality of those, though.

When and what and where did you first get published?

My first “real” professional publication was a flash piece in Daily Science Fiction, called “The Only One,” in May 2018. 

Why do you write?

I write because I think I have something to say. I’m always full of stories, and I can’t help but write. More recently, I’ve even started finding it fun.

Why do you write science fiction and/or fantasy?

Because it’s what I like to read. I also have a degree in physics, which means I’m thinking about science concepts and the future of technology and society all the time. I teach physics to high schoolers and I love sharing science fiction concepts with them!

Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story?

I’m still in love with Ender’s Shadow by Orson Scott Card. Also, The Three Body Problem by Cixin Liu.

What are you trying to say with your fiction?

Some of my stories explore what it means to be human. Some make suggestions about what love is and isn’t. Some remark on the nature of culture and progress. And some really are just to entertain. I’m happy to leave it up to the reader which of my stories are which.

If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say?

Soli Deo Gloria

Do you blog?

I have a blog at kmdailey.com, but I favor my vlog at https://www.youtube.com/snarkyphysicist.
