Bill wrote his first 'hardcore' science fiction book in second grade during book week. It was a five-page interplanetary epic, with a montage front cover and full page drawings. He came second in the competition which annoyed the hell out of him.
Having delved into Isaac Asimov's Space Ranger series as his first ever sci-fi read, he has since read and watched everything and anything that can be even remotely classified as science fiction. His biggest and most influential reads are P.K. Dick's 'The Man in the High Castle' and D. Simmon's 'The Hyperion Cantos'.
Bill has produced a few guerrilla films back when that was a thing and has recently been credited with the discovery of two exoplanets. These days his reading time is sacrificed in the pursuit of writing down his own stories from ideas he has accumulated over the years.
