Birthdate? November 10, 1954
When did you start writing? At around age 12.
When and what and where did you first get published? Aethon: A Journal Of Sports Literature, formerly published by The East Tennessee State University.
Why do you write? I have stories aching to come out of my soul and mind.
Why do you write Science Fiction and/or Fantasy? I have always enjoyed this genre, the ability of its writers to describe exotic times and places sufficiently to enable the reader to suspend disbelief.
Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story? This is a very, very difficult question. I am partial to Steven Milhauser, Flannery O'Connor, and so many others. Jack Vance comes to mind as does Theodore Sturgeon, "Microcosmic God." Impossible question to answer.
What are you trying to say with your fiction? I am trying to tell a good story.
Do you blog? Where? No.
If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say? He came, he bitched, he wrote, he bitched, he wrote....
