My name is D. L. Mackenzie, and I'm a writer and fiction editor. I live and work in a small town somewhere in Arizona's Tonto National Forest. I write science fiction, horror, and "retro-Victorian science fiction mystery."
I've long been a fan of the old masters of early science fiction such as Jules Verne and H. G. Wells, as well as other beloved classic writers such as Mark Twain. I'm also a confirmed word addict; I love collecting obscure words. Somehow these perverse predilections have combined with other diverse influences such as Kurt Vonnegut, Douglas Adams (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy), Dr. Who, and Monty Python to produce The Magnetron Chronicles, a loving parody of Victorian-era pulp fiction.
I now have three major projects in the works: The Kraken of Cape Farewell (Magnetron Chronicles vol. 6); Station Five, a modern horror/psychological thriller novel; and Write Your Novel, a nonfiction book on novel writing. I hope you enjoy my stories and I look forward to your feedback!
