Hi! Thanks for taking the time to look at my profile! I'm always looking to interact with readers and learn about what you're thinking. I will dedicate chapters to readers who help me find problems with my writing.

What do I do in real life and how does it relate to my writing? I have a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois for performing the first numerical simulations of rotating black hole spacetimes (this is me, too: https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=z1DYOIIAAAAJ&hl=en). As a writer, I use my computer and physics powers to listen to true stories from nearby spacetimes.

My first novel, "The Turquoise Bones," will be released by Clean Reads sometime around April this year. It is a young adult, sci-fi/romance set in a bronze age culture on an alien world, and is set in the same universe as my recently completed novel, "Warriors of the Hollow World" (https://www.wattpad.com/myworks/57689691-warriors-of-the-hollow-world).

My novel, "Sword and Illusion," written jointly with my wife, is availble for purchase on Amazon, paperback, audio, or e-book formats. Please check it out!

News: I participated in "A Day For Misunderstandings". My contribution is called "Wishes Brew," (https://www.wattpad.com/346767592-the-decameron-2-0-day-4-3-misunderstanding-wishes) named after a drink found on the bottom shelf in the mysterious, disappearing basement of a convenience store.

News: I participated in @scifinemesis ... You can buy it on Amazon (Search for "Nemesis Anthology" or visit my author page https://www.amazon.com/Steven-R.-Brandt/e/B01LZYPTFM/ref=dp_byline_cont_ebooks_4). There you'll find people marooned on alien worlds, meeting the goddess of vengeance, and (my story) a woman who always wished for superpowers discovering she had them all along.

It's been a long effort of re-editing "Warriors of the Hollow World", but I've removed a lot of typos and continuity problems. The story should be ready for publication on Kindle and in paper. It wil...
