In elementary school classrooms I was advised to set my goals along the lines of selling pencils at the local Staples. In the playgrounds I was told to get on my knees and kiss the cross, Jew. I'm here in spite of both of these forces.
A native of Central Florida, it was Ann McCaffrey's Dragonflight that first showed me the magic of fiction. I hope to share that same gift with others in the years to come.
