I've wanted to write science fiction since I was a kid. How's that for a cliché? Well, maybe not the science part so much. I grew up watching Star Trek reruns, Creature Feature and reading science fiction magazines. Star Wars was the first movie I ever saw in the theater a second time.
My favorite authors that can't help but have influenced my work are: David Brin, Larry Niven, Isaac Asimov, James P. Hogan, Daphne DuMaurier, Leon Uris, Sinclair Lewis, and JRR Tolkien.
Awesome Lavratt, my first published novel, 2009 Unlimited Publishing, is available at Amazon and your favorite online bookstores now.
Many of my stories are on the funny side. We could all use a few more laughs, right? I can't seem to stop writing stories, even while I'm working on a novel.
I've even had a couple things published this year in anthologies that aren't science fiction. One is a short memoir piece about finding my sister and the other is a story about a bull rider. You can find links for both in the published works section on the bio page of my Website.
Why Mystery Science Fictionator? Well, like Mystery Science Theatre, I can't shut up when I'm watching a movie. And unlike the Mystery Science Theatre hosts, I can do something about it: Make a better story. I'm currently exploring the crazy world of screenplay writing. I keep watching movies and think: You're kidding, right? I can so do better than that. Especially the made for TV ones. Why do they even bother? But you have to start somewhere, right?
