I've always had a fascination with interstellar travel and other worlds, and love bringing my space pirate Aston West (and other assorted characters from the same universe) to life in short stories and novels. Twice a top ten finisher in the P&E Readers Poll for his stories (2007, 2009), I have two books published by Burst Books, HEROES DIE YOUNG and FRIENDS IN DEED; an 11-story Aston West collection DEAD OR ALIVE by ResAliens Press; and two other non-series books, SEEKER and THE CURE. My latest Aston novel DEATH BRINGS VICTORY is now available as well. And for those who like their reading in small doses, I've started publishing Aston West Triple-Shots, three great space opera stories for under a buck. Outside of writing, I love all sorts of airplanes and spacecraft, computers and music (both listening, and playing -- a bass guitar for many years, and just started teaching myself the electric guitar). So, make sure to stop by often. If you like what you see with the pieces I post, be sure to check out the full versions of my published novels on Amazon, B&N.com and others...e-books and print. I also have plenty of freebies available on my website.
