F.J. Hansen

Biography

Greetings. I am F.J. Hansen. I hail from Fremont, CA, where I was born, raised, and am currently living with my parents. I am the seventh of seven children, with three older brothers and three older sisters -- three of whom are married and have moved out.

I've been writing science fiction since 1999, though Draconia: Forging Trust was my first published book. Besides writing, I enjoy traveling and the abundant life of our home planet.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I first started when I was 6 years old. Those early books were simply a collection of unrelated pictures with captions. Around 9 or 10, I wrote my first real story (a Star Trek fan fiction told through a collection of pictures and captions). About a year later, I wrote my first story without pictures--still Star Trek fan fiction. I wrote these stories for the next three years, drawing from a series of stories I creating using my Micro Machine starships. At around 13, I started to break away from the Star Trek stories to develop my own Universe.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Fremont, California, located on the southern tip of the San Francisco Bay Area. It's a culturally diverse area, and I try to be as equally diverse in my stories. Even though a lot of my stories are set in space or on different planets, I like to use real landscapes and settings as inspiration for settings on those other planets (like Draconia), and California has a lot of interesting landscapes.

    This nice short story gives a nice perspective on life and its troubles. I'm not sure I like the twist. Such a bummer ending to follow on the character's decision. Also some problems with punctuation and tense in places, but good effort.
