A few years ago I started to write and publish short stories using a variety of pen names. In 2011, I wrote and published over a million words.
I write using over a dozen pen names and have published over 700 titles that represent over 1,500 short stories, novellas and plays.
My works cover 8 of the 10 categories of the Dewey Decimal system.
If you had a list of the most prolific short story writers in all of human history I would easily fit in the top ten - and that is only from the last five years of my output as a writer.
Recently I turned my hand to writing science fiction.
I love imagining what might be in the future, but it may not always be rosy so you tend not to see the hero saving the world on the last page on my stories.
I recently discovered that I am genetically a Saami. I suspect part of that identity, and the thousands of years of isolation from humankind in my genes, also comes out in some of my stories.
I write quickly, to tell a simple and entertaining story. I imagine we are sitting around the camp-fire in an era long gone. The story should be sharp and to the point so that it is memorable. I don't believe in filling 300 pages with mindless waffle.
I don't plan my stories - I put my fingers on the keyboard and let them tell the story - the ending often unfolds from my fingertips without even thinking what it might be.
My favourite sci-fi short stories of the ones I have published so far?
I really enjoyed writing 2094, it had been forming in my mind for many years.
In 2012, the cover of 2094 was sent to the edge of space on a hot air balloon and then returned - that was a great thrill.
The Multiverse Traveler is another favourite and I am tempted to continue on with it into other stories.
May I recommend, Androgyne, a recent addition to my bookshelf and a story I thoroughly enjoyed telling, and Avatar Gods which just felt amazing to write. I love the emotion it generates. It really adds to the atmosphere if you listen to the songs mentioned in the story.
I also have experimented with putting music to my works, my series Fembot Wars has an album of music set to the theme of the ebook series. I have published the songs under the name of an avatar I created, a musical pen name.
I recently began to write short plays for the ten minute play market, I hope you enjoy them. They are usually funny and to the point!
Finally, I enjoy listening to music as I write, it provides the stimulation for moods. Here is my writing playlist on Youtube, for those interested...

These stories recall the epic sweep of sci-fi pioneers like Olaf Stapledon - they span decades, or even centuries. Some barely have dialogue, or even characters, at all. (They're very much "tell, don't show.") Several have religious themes. Your mileage may vary, but these were not at all to my taste.
