Related Experience

I have been a professional fiction writer since the late 1980's. I have around forty professionally published novels to my credit as well as scores of short stories. Recently, I've branched out from prose fiction writing to graphic novels and scripting electroic games. Many of my storeis have been tie-in projects (fiction based on works in other media like role-playing games.)

I've also taught writing at the college level and have been a speaker at many science fiction conventions.
