About the Author

Why do I write?
Actually, music was always my thing from the time I was a kid (still is too), performing, writing songs and recording. I might have concentrated on writing stories more from an early age except that one of my fiction essays was severely criticized by an English teacher in high school as being plagiarized from a television program–but it wasn’t. It was actually my creation and I was proud of it. That discouraged any further writing for years.
Then I re-discovered my love of writing, especially creative writing, in college. I almost changed my major from engineering. For many years, all I did was technical writing. A few years ago I started blogging just for the fun of it—all kinds of subjects. It renewed my interest in creative writing.
So I decided to write a book—science fiction because I could make up all the rules! Science fiction was never high on my radar before, so I was amazed at how much I got into writing both Breaching The Guardian Dimension and Silicon Facades. It was a ball developing the characters and stories. I wouldn’t do it if it wasn’t a blast.
The idea for a key element, the “4M” machines, in both books came about from lying on my bed with a headache one night, feeling the pulse of blood rushing and pounding through my eyes and realizing that if I relaxed muscles around my eyes, the pulsing would increase and relieve the intensity of the headache. “What if there was a machine that did this?” I thought. Now there is, and it does more than just relieve headaches!
