A little about myself... I write mostly science fiction and fantasy, usually somewhere between the two. No idea what my genre would be. Wizards in space! Or something like that.  I'm a husband and a father. I try to be a teacher whenever I can be. Otherwise, I mountain bike play as much Frisbee as short Saskatchewan summer allows and game in the spare minutes I have between everything else.

Read as much as you can, write as often as you're able. Remember, writers make good books, but communities make GREAT books.

Any questions? Send me a PM, I'd probably like to know you better!

When asked how to get published, Neil Gaiman said "Write. Finish things. Keep writing."

"Write down the voices in your head, stud it with novel words, and now you're a writer. You know, instead of a whackjob. At least some of the time."~ Jerry Holkins
