I'm a scientist writing science fiction and fantasy.
Recently finshed my entry for the Open Novella Contest "Moebius 2157", a dystopian SciFi story dealing with the intricacies of time travel. Feedback always welcome!
- "Against the Tide", a space opera featuring pirates, cyborgs and lots of explosions.
- "The 10th Circle - Abyss", SciFi-Fantasy mystery set in a utopian post-apocalyptic world in which things are not as they seem.
Currently on hiatus due to personal reasons, but occasionally checking DMs and comments.
Many of my stories revolve around questions about the human mind/theory of mind, consciousness, dreaming, and a sense of self. I am a molecular biologist with some neuroscience background, and beyond that I am deeply fascinated by computer science (mainly artificial intelligence) and cognitive biology. All these topics influence my stories. I have a particular interest in portraying scientists as multi-faceted, interesting characters, beyond the "evil" and "mad" tropes.
Relationships, from friendship to love and anything in between, usually play a big role in my stories. I like to throw my characters into intense situations, since I like to write about feelings - perhaps to compensate the fact that I have a rather hard time expressing them in real life. My writing is cathartic, but not autobiographic. There is a little bit of me in most of my major characters - usually their quirks and neuroses :)
I love descriptive and romantic (in the sense of romanticism, not romance) writing. I know that this is not everybody's cup of tea, but I try to follow the advice 'Write the story you would like to read'.
