Of Made and Born, pt 2 of 2 (#FridayFlash)
The conclusion to last week’s post … Matos stood quiet a long moment, then heaved a deep sigh. “No. But how…? We have children!” “Your new ‘friends’ have fed you on lies and half-truths. They point to the monsters that corrupt Makers unleash upon the world,...

He did WHAT?
Dubbayou tee EFFFFF? Reality is truly stranger than fiction… especially on Planet Georgia. Just go read this . Seriously. Now the question is, did the deal go down as he says, or was that just a cover story?

Of Made and Born, pt 1 of 2 (#FridayFlash)
I have a two-parter this week. It’s a Termag story, from the distant past before the Makers departed for the City of Refuge. The line "damn it, you fool, I’m her father!” came from a dream I had. I built the rest of the story from there… Image source: openc...

The Final Confession of Judas Iscariot (#FridayFlash)
This is one of those stories I’ve wanted to write for a long time, and finally managed it this week. Being Good Friday, I guess it’s the best time for it. It ’s an alternate history in which Judas did not hang himself… Image source: Wikimedia Commons The fi...

Bailar Downriver (#FridayFlash)
This is another one of the “young Bailar” stories, the next scene after The Voice of the Forest . The barge crew and porters laughed as Bailar sim Prensin pulled himself out of the muddy water of the river landing, using his staff and the gangplank to stead...

“Is all well, good scribe?” Breeze wrote on the chalkboard. Image source: openclipart.org My feet were freezing, and I hate for my feet to be cold. The lighting was all wrong. This suit chafed me. But I really shouldn’t complain; I was one of the first twen...

Introduction
What I do isn't necessary what I am.

I've been doing technical writing since 1982. In that time, I got married, raised two kids, and am now raising a grandkid. The latter, family, is what defines me. If my career were my life, many things would be different.

I've always wanted to write stories, but too often found myself doing other things. At some point in the last few years, I got serious about it. In that time, I've written two novels, started a third, and wrote numerous short stories and flash fiction pieces. Many of them can be found on my blog, and I'm in the final few laps of publishing one of my novels, White Pickups.

I'm not all that concerned about "getting published" as eBook outlets now make it possible to bypass the entire query/agent/publisher gauntlet. Yes, doing it yourself is a lot of work — but honestly, the traditional route requires much the same amount (and kinds) of work but without any guarantee of seeing your work on the shelves, actual or virtual. That's not to say I would turn down a traditional book deal if one were offered, but I'm not going to go begging either. In either case, I don't expect to quit my dayjob. It's more important to me that people read and enjoy my stories than having some commercial success.
