Due to a varied work background, I can claim a moderate knowledge of harnessing, hitching and working draft horses, canoe expeditioning, and medicine, and know more about concrete than I really need to.I love speculative fiction, I always have, and it's almost all I've ever read. When I read, I want to escape the ordinary, the mundane. I want to read things I've never thought of and be taken places I would otherwise never see. Armed with what is apparently a hereditary drive to write, I embarked some years ago to begin creating my own speculative worlds. To date, my stories have appeared in a variety of magazines and anthologies. I have two completed fantasy novels (hopefully out soon) and a new one in progress.
