I am a former high school coach and classroom teacher and I really enjoyed the challenges of working with my students. I left teaching and worked for a major corporation and then owned my own business. I decided to sit down one day about three years ago and write a science fiction story. I’ve loved science fiction my entire life and have read so many books from the great masters that have shaped my view of the world and cosmos. My wife urged me to give it a go and publish the books I had written; she felt I was a great story teller and that others might enjoy my rather over active imagination. The first book was Annihilation – love Conquers All. Before I knew it, five books had found their way on to my laptop. I allowed friends to read them and the response was overwhelming. I decided to publish them on Amazon Kindle. I have discovered a few things since.
I found out that there were thousands that enjoyed my books and bought all three of the first trilogy making all three books best sellers on Amazon. I also discovered that there were others who pointed out that I have a lot to learn about writing style, grammar, sentence structure and so many other things. I agree with them. I am a work in progress. However, my intent is to entertain and produce a story that keeps the reader turning pages. I write so that anyone can enjoy the story. I keep it clean so that parents won’t have to worry about their children reading my books.
I want science fiction fans, like myself, to stay up all night trying to finish the story. I write like I speak. I do recognize that I have some work ahead to become a more accomplished writer but the only way to grow is to continue writing. I have also discovered that I do have a passion to provide books for those that enjoy my stories. I do hope that I never get so caught up in style that I lose the ability to produce an entertaining story.
There, you’re warned. Now hold on to your seat and get into the seven science fiction series I’ve created. Have I got some stories for you.
