My Bio
I live in a part of the World currently known as The West, where modern trends clash with age old tradition. Understand that I love that. History and science fiction are two of my main interests and I always try to combine the two somehow. Past and future always seem at odds. Somewhere in the middle, there we are, caught in the maelstrom. Somewhere in that swirling storm, there I am. Watching. Wondering. Dreaming. Writing.

I rock out to Metallica when the mood strikes me for session of wall-smashing sound. Have you ever heard James Hetfield sing about the glory of the internal combustion engine or what it's like to lose your mind in a sanitarium or try to barter you out of your soul with the Devil's own words? You might like it. I certainly do.

I love (LOVE!) comics, a.k.a. graphic novels. It's a shame I can't draw anything worth the napkin it's doodled on. But hey, if YOU dig the comic format AND you can draw AND you're short on stories, don't be shy. Drop me a line. I've got them up the wazoo.

I have a personal quote that I say to myself each and every time I submit a piece of writing, be it on DeviantArt, or to a magazine or to a publisher. It's not very deep or eloquent but I mean it whole-heartedly. That personal quote is: I hope it doesn't suck.

So take a look around. I won't charge you for browsing. And feel free to comment. I like the conversation.

Favourite Visual Artist
I can't get enough of Billy Tan at the moment. Juan Jose Ryp is awesome, too.
Favourite Movies
Bram Stoker's Dracula; Dark Knight. No, I will not choose just one!
Favourite TV Shows
Firefly was the bomb! Scifi nerds should check out Babylon 5 and Star Trek: DS9; Buffy, the Vampire Slayer was another great Joss Whedon project. And right now I can't wait for more The Walking Dead.
Favourite Bands / Musical Artists
Metallica! Metallica! Korn, too. Rammstein. Oh, and Guano Apes. Bush sometimes.
Favourite Books
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy; Antares Dawn by Michael McCollum; A Hymn Before Battle; Zima Blue; Old Man's War; Thirteen Bullets; No Hero by Warren Ellis.A God Somewhere by John Arcudi and Peter Snejbjerg.
Favourite Writers
In no particular order: Alastair Reynold, Neal Asher, John Scalzi, Rick Remender, Warren Ellis, H.P. Lovecraft, David Wellington. John Ringo can write some awesomely kinetic action, though.
Favourite Games
Remember Starcraft? Good times.
Favourite Gaming Platform
PC, but not for a great many years.
Tools of the Trade
Word; pen and paper. Not always in that order.
Other Interests
Science fiction. Comic books. History. Writing. Reading. Day trips. Karate. No particular order.
People who favourite your work without even having had the time to read it just so you might give them a page view or a 'thanks for the fave'. This is my newest pet peeve. Seriously.

I must say these have been a very satisfying few days since I saw that my story from last year's Flash Fiction Month received a Daily Deviation. Siege of Taurus has so far gotten 1425 views and been favourited 54 times. I've gotten some impressive exposure and a great deal of positive feedback so I would say some thanks are in order. Firstly, I have to say thank you to ^Beccalicious for featuring Siege of Taurus. If not for her, I wouldn't have received any of the appreciation on that story that I got. Secondly, I'd like to say a special thank you to ~aliceinthematrix for the very special words she left on Siege of Taurus and also on A Turn
