Got my first science fiction book when I was seven. Mickey Mouse and His Space Ship. Thanks Dad. Soon the lady at the library showed me bigger books, with rocket ships on the spines. Thank you, Miss Duckworth. Then I got to fly some rocket ships myself. Well, science and weather satellites, working with lots of interesting folks at NASA and NOAA. Talk about a thrill!
Now, about the writing. A lot of other stuff got pounded into the keyboard on my way to science fiction, but I am finally back to my roots. Three stories sold to Analog. Thank you, Stan Schmidt and Trevor Quachri. And blogging – all kinds of interesting things to talk about – and a novel in the works, going on the third draft, with a few more drafts to go. Wish me luck.
