I have had a rather esoteric career. Before going to University I was a soldier (way pre-gulf war on terror). I earned a PhD in Physics, have worked on everything from theoretical physics to Patriot Missiles with a lot of stops in the middle.
I turned to part time fiction writing after years of reading the stuff. I felt that there was a space that was left empty by the passing of many great authors. Much of today’s fiction falls into a young adult category, which is great, however leaves those seeking something that falls into categories outside of that realm lacking for new concepts.
Some of my fiction is experimental and really doesn’t fit in a category, while other works can be more easily categorized.
Today I work as a consultant, to some projects a CTO and yes, I still write.
