I've been reading books since I was a teenager, spending hours upon hours on everything from Stephen King, Tom Clancy, Ken Follett, Robert Ludlum to Orson Scott Card, Isaac Asimov, Greg Bear, Dan Brown  and so on. My favorite genres tend to be science fiction and adventure/thriller type books. Historical fiction, such as Pillars of the Earth, is also very fascinating. .

Outside of reading science fiction anytime I can, I love science in general and specifically in those areas that tie into science fiction in any way. I'm also an avid reader of history. My own writing tends to lean towards science fiction. I have participated in several Nanowrimo's (2007 and 2015 winner) and also the 3-Day Novel Writing Contest. My purpose here on Wattpad is to get some of my writing out to the public for feedback, so I can figure out what's good and what's not.

I also love to draw, primarily pencil and colored pencil. I've also been doing web design for many years and I love programming as well. Throughout the years I have dabbled in everything from basic on the C64 to Assembly and AMOS on the Amiga to PASCAL and more recently, VBA, Javascript, PHP and HTML5.

The common thread: anything that lets my creativity be brought to life I tend to be attracted to, whatever it may be.

Note: Currently, I'm not taking on any reading requests. My schedule is just too busy at the moment to be able to devote the proper amount of time and feedback to a story.

I blog about tech, fiction, and my own personal interests at http://www.talltechtales.com.
