Currently, my day job is as a licensed architect. I design schools, office buildings, maintenance stations and any number of buildings.
I do have a second occupation. I write. I write in the evenings. I write on the weekends. I write during lunch breaks. I write whenever I am sitting in airport terminals or when I ride planes, trains and buses. My first novel length manuscript was first drafted at the turn of the century when my daughter was born and I had a one hour commute each way in and out daily. I’ve been writing off and on since the 8th grade, but it was my introduction to the word processor in community college that broadened the scope of what I write. While I have worked for years to become the architect I am today, I have also wanted to write.
I get my chance to do plenty of technical writing in my day job. It would amaze most people to learn how planning and executing a building project is more about words than it is about drawing some lines on paper. I have a yearning to tell stories as well. Most of what I have written and what you will see here is science fiction, my first love in literature. There are other story ideas in other genres that may one day see print. For now though, I have invented a universe in our future that is waiting to be shared.
Welcome and I hope you enjoy what you find here as much as I have enjoyed creating these works.
