I’m a reader, writer, game enthusiast and developer, engineer, and history buff. I’ve lived or worked in over a dozen countries, learning different cultures, viewpoints, and attitudes, which have influenced my writing, contributing to one of my major themes: alternate and creative conflict resolution. The same situations can be viewed by different cultures quite differently. Sometimes it leads to conflict, sometimes to hilarity. Both make for a great story.
I’ve also never missed a chance to visit historic sites, from castle dungeons, to catacombs, to the holds of tall ships, to the tunnels of the Maginot Line. It might be considered research, except for the minor fact that my tales are all set on the whimsical and terrifying world of Arvia. Where giant mythic monsters are often more easily overcome with empathy than explosions.
