Retired RF engineer, currently living in Northern California. My interests include writing post apocalyptic novels and working with my hands. When writing I find the most difficult thing for me is editing. I free flow write, so I am visualizing the scenes and action as I write so I have to edit and re-write with detail what I see in order to allow the reader to see it as well. I also enjoy light construction, welding and machining. I have restored motorcycles and cars. My hobbies other than writing give me at least some degree of comprehension of the difficulties that would be encountered if you were required to build, construct, or forage for everything you needed.
Where to find Jeff Ping online
Trackers: The Empire Founders
Trackers: This is a story set in a Post Apocalyptic World. I could have just written a story about primitive cave people but I wanted the option of a cannon or a submachine gun being introduced. I wanted to try a story without zombies as the primary threat.

Excellent story, I found the historical facts and fiction entertaining. I felt that the science fiction aspects were presented in a believable presentation. I enjoyed this story immensely and have already started on the second book of the series.

Excellent, I enjoyed the characters and the stories. Now that I've finished all five books I will miss the characters especially Brynn for his knack for finding things worth stealing. These were easily five of the best stories out of the hundred or so that I've read this year. Thank you very much, an again may I say they were a pure joy to read.
