Birthdate? December 2
When did you start writing? When I was 7 or 8 years old
When and what and where did you first get published? In 1995 in my college's literary arts magazine. The story was called "C'est la vie: A Satire of Stereotypes."
Why do you write? I feel compelled by the characters and plots that pop in my head where they keep swirling around until I commit them to paper (or rather computer).
Why do you write Science Fiction and/or Fantasy? That's just the kind of plot and settings that my mind naturally gravitates toward (probably because I like science and ancient/medieval history). I find most mainstream literature boring and overwrought.
Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story? Homer's (the Greek guy, not the cartoon guy) Odyssey
What are you trying to say with your fiction? It depends on the story. Mostly, I'm just trying to tell a good yarn. I don't like overtly preachy stories.
Do you blog? Where? Only for my day job, anonymously.
If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say? "Made you look."
