Childhood Inspirations
We all know the axiom that "Writers read," but does that mean they were always avid readers? Let's find out, shall we... When you were a child, were you an avid reader? Why or why not? Aaron Smith: I read constantly as a child, mostly because I wasn't the t...

Returned from Hypericon 10 safe and sound. Once again, the con staff did a marvelous job. Many thanks to everyone involved and all those who attended. An especial thanks to those brave enough to sit through the panels I sat on. Courageous souls all!

3D printing technology is taking off.
From lifesaving implants to cutting edge fashion, 3D printing is the gift that keeps on giving. What will this additive technology do next? Well, 3D print a steel bridge in mid-air, of course.

Back safe from LibertyCon. Had a great time. Very professionally run con. My daughter was able to have a one-on-one with Bill Fawcett that has her chomping at the bit to get her novel done. Congrats again to Sam Flegal for being Artist GOH!

You may be cool, but you will never be "Sweetest-Little-Gal-in-the-'Verse dressing up as a Space Cowboy for her TV Dad" cool.

Story
Tagline
Writer of the mundane and fantastic... and everything in between.
Introduction
I have been writing speculative fiction for over 40 years, but only recently have I been able to pursue it full-time. After retiring from my position as an air traffic controller, I decided to devote myself to my writing, not realizing I was trading one stressful career for another. Nevertheless, through my short fiction and novels, at least I have an outlet for my obsession with the written word.
Bragging rights
Author of the recent novel releases "Angelkiller", "Traitor Angel", and "Doom Angel" from Seventh Star Press. My other works include novels like "Ascendant" (from which the short independent film "Swordbearer" was adapted) and "Emperor" (Sam's Dot Publishing). My short story publications are too numerous to mention here. You can find a complete list at my website.
