I’m a retired telecom engineer, NRA Patron member, Extra Class Amateur Radio Operator (W∅TMW), Air Force vet and church Elder. I created this blog at the urging of some folks who think I have an occasional thought. A liberal friend once described me as “being just to the right of Atilla the Hun.” I thanked her for that description and told her I’d do my best to maintain her expectations.
This blog has been inactive for some time. I’m resurrecting it to be my Writer’s website. I’ve been writing fiction for some time and have made over a dozen sales (two more pending).
Initially, I wrote Alternative History, writing in Eric Flint’s 1632 universe. I’ve had two novelettes purblished in Eric Flint’s Grantville Gazette plus a 33K word novella in . My fourth story will appear in an upcoming issue of the Gazette.
My big announcement is the publishing of my first full-sized novel early in 2020. The cover and back cover blurb is shown below. I’ll add an Amazon link when it’s published.
When Fabien Loche arrives in the Confederation as SolSytem’s newest Liaison, his government believes he’s a broken man sent into exile. But the new job, and the new culture, are far more strange and welcoming than either had anticipated. With the help of the local Chief Inspector, and his headstrong niece Molly, Loche plunges headlong into exploring and learning everything on the station above and world below.
More is riding on his assimilation than his future. He’s also the vanguard of the spaceborne Houses of SolSystem, who are preparing to flee the reach of an increasingly unstable and aggressive Earth. But the Confederation is far more fragmented and factioned than he expected. The scramble to control the highly advanced technology that the Houses will bring, and the fear of losing it, may be the wedge that drives Confederation and Sol System alike into war…
Émigré will be available in paperback and as an ebook.
