Howard is an Implementor of interactive fiction. What is an Implementor? Think of a cross between an author and a computer programmer.


Background Information

Howard's affinity for interactive fiction began with his very first experience with a computer altogether. In 1982, at the age of 12, Howard walked over to a TRS-80 Model III on display at a Radio Shack store in Brooklyn, New York. Reading the screen of riveting text he was instantly captivated. The game was Zork. Howard volunteered his time to work in that Radio Shack store in exchange for computer time.


While most, if not all, labor laws of the time were broken in the process, Howard did indeed get all the time he wanted to play Zork and other games he discovered. One of his crowning achievements that year was making the rank of "Junior Adventurer" in Zork.

From Fan to Writer - A New Implementer is Born

In 1997, Howard and tens of thousands of other people still loved the classic Infocom games although the Infocom everyone knew and loved no longer existed. Turning to the Internet, Howard found other fans of Interactive Fiction and an amazing set of development tools collectively called Inform that empowered him to recreate the magic Infocom first created. Then and there, a new Implementor was born.

Being the entrepreneur that he is Howard quickly realized that he, and countless other fans, craved more games in the Infocom tradition and immediately realized he was in the unique position of satisfying that craving. Asking himself a "What if...?" question, our beloved Implementor began to think. Howard had the tools, the inspiration and the market demand. And so Pentari: The Prequel was born; a free itneractive fiction short story to introduce First  Light which he had then started.

Today, Howard writes across many genres captivating audiences of many kinds of fiction.  Drawing on his own eclectic interests in fiction and infleunces, Howard delivers an immersive storytelling experience thanks to the interactive nature of his ebooks.
