Here's a thought -- you've come to the page of a fiction writer, and now you want to read about him, right? Why would you expect him to tell the truth? You realize that each of us is his own creation, and the parts we choose to reveal are crafted to make us seem kind, powerful, brilliant, victimized .... Why should I be exempt?
With that preface, I'll note my background is neither extraordinary, nor is my history notable. (This is a stark contrast with my collaborator, Lindsay Petersen, who lives in a fascinating world indeed.)
What I will tell -- I spent decades running a plumbing business in Southern California. I sold it in 2007, and since have found many trades and professions in which I've been unemployed. (The photo above is from a stint as a background actor for a Dodge Brothers commercial). I wasted this spare time writing novels, mostly -- also a screenplay (this is Hollywood, after all), a musical play with talking animals, and some short stories. Any day now, overnight fame will find me.
Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up.

Dragons & Dirigibles
by Lindsay Peet
Steampunk scoundrel Jaf Daskal looks back shamelessly at the adventure that started his unlikely climb to 'hero'.Stumbling on the lost continent of Caliuga, he and his criminal crew try to engage in 'harmless fraud', but end up experimenting with a new drug, founding a new religion, and maybe introducing dragons. There's scheming, struggles, battles, and a strange ending.
