I'm a former soldier, classified courier, and security technician. I currently work as an Emergency Medical / x-ray tech for an urgent care clinic. I've had Historical, SciFi, and Spec-Fiction stories published in Electronic Tales, Amazing Journeys, Cyberpulp, Ray Gun Revival, Flashing Swords, Spacewesterns, Heroic Fantasy Quarterly, Abandoned Towers and Alienskin magazines. I've had stories included in Clash of Steel 'Demons', Rage of the Behemoth, and Tales of the Emerald Serpent anthologies. I also worked for several years as a slush reader and editor for Cyberwizard Productions. An e-anthology of my Sci-Fi/ Space Western adventures, 'The Stars Like Candles Proudly Shown', was just released this year and my first Western novel, 'Born to Trouble' is scheduled for publication in 2013.
I've always had a love of Techno-Retro fantasy and just sold my first steampunk story. I have several others 'under consideration' and two steampunk novels about half finished so expect to see more of my work in the future.

I thought I'd share this as a frequent topic on these forums is the question of self-publication. Since amazon can be a very large part of a self-published author's publication plan, I found this debate interesting.The debate was held on NPR's Intelligence Squared, which does a very good job of presenting both sides of an issue. While I won't discuss the podcast for fear of presenting a bias, the discussion does broach on a number of topics that I found incredibly enlightening: whether…See More
