I love good stories. A book a day was my youthful standard. I can still remember exactly where I was when I read classics like Lord of the Rings, Stranger in a Strange Land, and the Foundation trilogy.
In the 80s, I lived as a writer in South Austin, performing the poems at Chicago House that eventually became "A Week of Years." Then, my son came along, and I got caught up in the tech industry. During two decades at Dell, I gathered a pocketful of good stories, and "Riding on the Coattails of Genius" became my first Amazon publishing experience.
Today, I'm back to writing for a living and couldn't be happier. My new series, The Celestial Wars, is set right here in Austin. I was going for a Harry Dresden vibe, so my favorite feedback is from the critic who summed up the first book, "Waite on the Ripper," with one word--"Intense!"
My favorite part of the process has been listening to these books come alive through Dan Johnson's narration. If you want to hear one of my best short stories enhanced by one of Dan's most mesmerizing performances, join me at https://www.thecreativenow.com/subscription and download it for free!
