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. There are currently three novels "in the series" with HEROES DIE YOUNG, FRIENDS IN DEED and DEATH BRINGS VICTORY; an 11-story Aston West collection DEAD OR ALIVE; and a short (free) novella SEEKER. And for those who like their reading in smaller doses, I've started publishing Aston West Triple-Shots, three great space opera stories for under a buck.

And for those who aren't all that into space pirates and science fiction, I've also teamed up with Lyndon Perry for a series of historical fiction/YA novellas featuring an orphan (Max McCannor) and his friends. ESCAPE is the first novella in this series.

I also have a separate thriller novel, THE CURE.

Outside of writing, I love everything related to airplanes and spacecraft, using 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.

@rlcopple Yup, it's an interesting place...I haven't been as active as I probably should have, but hard to find a lot of time when you're trying to get so many projects done. ;-)
