About meI'm a bank clerk by day and a writer by night. My published fiction so far involves Star Trek, but I intend to branch out into general SF, and maybe fantasy, too, if I get the chance. My partner-in-crime is ex-Cincinnati resident Steve Mollmann, and together we’ve written one novella (Star Trek: S.C.E.: What’s Past #2: The Future Begins), two short stories (in Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Sky’s the Limit), and the forthcoming novel The Tears of Eridanus (in Myriad Universes: Shattered Light). Our first standalone, full-length novel came out in September 2011, entitled Star Trek: A Choice of Catastrophes. You'll notice that the book titles are getting shorter. The next sale will probably not even involve any colons.

About my libraryMy libary contains a lot of German fiction, because that is what I was reading when I grew up. Consequently, much of this is what is termed Young Adult.

The expanding majority, however, is English fiction and nonfiction. Much of that is tie-in fiction, because I enjoy reading it--mostly Star Trek and Doctor Who. Recently, though, I've decided to branch out and read more widely in areas that I once wouldn't have considered part of my comfort zone. I like to challenge myself; this is why my library includes a lot of Penguin Classics. (Also, the covers look spiffy!)
