About the Author

Born a ‘Boomer’ in a small town in Texas, my young life was consumed, as most kids after the launch of Sputnik, with imaginary worlds and the wonders of the ‘Space Age’. My interest in space was further fueled by the awesome ‘B’ Sci-Fi films being made in the early sixties. There was adventure and hope and the possibility that we were not alone in the universe. Oh, and the chance that I might someday have a flying car, or a jet pack!

Always an Artist and a Musician, I painted scenes of distant planets and environments that I referred to as “travel photos”, and with my wife Katharine, helped create a band called Windshadow, that played original music in the genre of…you guessed it, Spacey Progressive Rock. Although we never got our ‘big break’, the band played for almost 20 years opening big shows for the likes of Chuck Mangione and Rick Wakeman of “Yes” fame. Shortly after that, the music was put on hold and Katharine and I turned our attention to raising a family.

Working as a Custom Woodworker, sitting on all of this pent-up creative energy, I felt it was time to apply my lifetime of Sci-Fi experience and imagination to writing. After all, I’d spent the last twenty years or so filling notebooks with lyrics and thought, hey, maybe I can write more than one page of words? The rest of the story, yet to be written, is hopefully contained in my work.
