Thanks for stopping by. You’ve reached the online presence of a speculative fiction writer. In this case, speculative encompasses science fiction, space opera, horror, fantasy, historical fiction and paranormal mystery. Novels, novellas, short stories. No poetry so far but maybe someday.

Currently I’m working on the Mars Wars trilogy of science fiction novels with Kensington Books for their Rebel Base imprint. I also spin up a few short stories along the way.

Lift off began in 1/2019 with Detonation Event (Mars Wars Book 1)

Rogue Planet (Mars Wars Book 2) was published 1/21/2020.

Mars Wars Book 3 is currently underway.

Note the vibrancy of life on Earth. It is rare not find some kind of life, regardless of how hostile the environment. But on Mars — currently — there is no life.

Perhaps billions of years ago there were primitive lifeforms, and the Red Planet had hot, radioactive cores that created a magnetosphere to fend off solar winds while holding onto its water and air. Now the rock and sand is barren and the weaker rays of a more distant sun can only illuminate the desolation.

Writing, on any given day, moves along a scale between these two extremes.

As you may have guessed, the Mars Wars series involves terra forming Mars, but there are conflicts and other undesirable consequences ….
