Biography

I came into this world in 1987 with a love science fiction, and it has been the driving force behind my absurd literary scribbles.

It's not just about the sci-fi. I write about the general happenings of life within a sci-fi setting. In a reflection of my own life, my characters often have to experience hardship before getting what they want. Grit and cynicism are common themes in my stories, but that just makes the light at the end of the tunnel even brighter -- and it's not the headlight of an incoming freight train, either. The darkness is pierced by the brightness of comedy, whether it's the main characters taking wry jabs at each other or some sort of idiosyncratic circumstance putting an amusing twist on a situation. This is all mixed in with a richly detailed depiction of a future world that has seen one too many downturns.

With that in mind, I refer primarily to my Riesel Tales: Two Hunters works. Set over 6000 years in the future on a city-covered dystopia world called Riesel, two bounty hunters by the names of Runge Margavo and Ramy Dusotes make their living doing what they do best. Surviving on such a world is hard enough, and their clashing personalities don't make things any easier. Runge is a wisecracking vice addict who frequents clubs and bars when he's not on a mission, and his platonic partner in business, Ramy Dusotes, serves as his mostly straight-minded female foil.

I can also be found elsewhere on the Web under the handle RieselUniverse, such as Twitter, Facebook, Wikia, TV Tropes (Riesel Tales page), and DeviantArt!

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Placing my characters into humorous situations, especially when the setting itself is otherwise very serious.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up on Earth. The cheeky stupidity of mankind has provided great influence. This is why my characters are so cynical and silly.
