Author has written 24 stories for Sci-Fi, Nature, Essay, Fable, General, Spiritual, Humor, Mystery, Action, Supernatural, and Horror.

I'm just a humble writer, like you - well, maybe a bit less humble at times. Douglas Adams and Stephen King are my greatest influences, and I attempt to emulate them to some extent, but not at the risk of being them. I've recently gotten into Robert A. Heinlein, so you might sense a bit of him creeping in in the future.

You can also find me on FanFiction, but I doubt there will be many new stories popping up there: http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1152281/

I hope that you enjoy my writing, and I'd like to conclude with a touching quote:

“Life is like a grapefruit. Well, it's sort of orangy-yellow and dimpled on the outside, wet and squidgy in the middle. It's got pips inside, too. Oh, and some people have a half a one for breakfast.” – Douglas Adams, So Long, and Thanks For All the Fish
