The Future Shaper

Although written, I like to put my stories to rest and revisit them after I contemplate what I’ve done. In The Future Shaper, I’ve set the world at war while my protagonist works in a sanctuary on the edge of the Atacama Desert in Chile. He is there for his passions and his visions, and he is a part of an experiment aimed at reinventing the human genome and the technologies that will secure mans place in the cosmos. It […]

The Future Teller

Freedom is an ideal, and one that many Americans are proud of. Just how free are we as individuals or even as a society? We’re free to make money so we can pay taxes and buy groceries. We’re free to buy insurance. We’re free to build houses and buildings that meet government rules and regulations. We’re free to try and live off the land as long as we obey more rules and regulations. Truth be told, we as a group […]

Resurrecting Terra

With a little luck the aliens would have abandoned Earth, but to our trios dismay, a mothership crashes and aliens survive. Eventually they have no choice but to deal with the aliens as they began to recover and build a city while dismantling their mothership. The alien toil night and day, and soon hatch their offspring, increasing their numbers and seemingly begin to transform Earth back to a humid, highly oxygenated subtropical environment suitable to their liking. Not all is […]

Harvesting Terra

If aliens have the technology to colonize worlds, what worlds will have the defenses to stop them? Tavis Hunter is convinced Earth does not as the harvesting begins, and he out of sheer luck becomes one of a handful of survivors. All oxygen breathing organisms are vacuumed from the surface, and Earth transmogrifies into a sea of purple plants that quickly alter the ecosystem. Tavis meets up with Dana and Bree, and they soon come to the realization that survival […]

Planet Passing

What lurks in the universe? For the moment we can only pray that the dice are in our favor, for there is no escape from Earth, and no means of survival if the ecosystem is destroyed. Astronomers have an eye on the cosmos, and although there are some concerns of an astroid impact, no one has envisioned a passing planet that will drag the moon into an elliptical orbit so radical that its return will wreck havoc on the world, […]

Silent Trek, the Illustrated Version

My first foray into creating illustrations came from creating a trailer for Silent Wave. The process is painstaking. Photo realistic images that are believable are a challenge to produce. Creating scenes that have to be composited because only elements exist can take hours, even if you have all the elements. People are a problem since the people you might envision might be described to look similar to a given actress or actor, and you can’t just grab their image off […]

Silent Wave: Writing Fiction

As I’m sure all writers do from time to time, we stop and evaluate what we are doing, like some revelation has hit us in the face and we can say oh well, I guess my writing was a big waste of time, so I think I’ll just stop. But then I realize that writing really matters. This sort of introspection is good for us all, writers and readers alike. Why now? Well, I reread a review of my first […]

Resurrecting Terra: Ethics in Writing Science Fiction:

There are probably lessons to be learned about being open and honest when writing, be it a novel or even nonfiction. Offending your reader will probably get you on someone’s shit list. It’s true that science fiction is given some leeway due to the very nature of exploring new ideas, worlds, and societies. As a reader, I’m quite often amazed at how gutless authors can be that are fearful they will have to defend what they believe or at least […]
