Welcome to my corner of Wattpad!

I am a retired chemical engineer who came into Wattpad as a reader, but soon tried my hand at fiction. My previous writing experience consisted of technical and research reports. With no delusions of fame and fortune, I write mainly for the sheer enjoyment of it, and Wattpad provided a good way to share and interact with others. You will find primarily science fiction and fantasy, but I sometimes dabble in other genres. Romance or family subplots are common.

Following is a list of my stories (most recent first, by category). If you would like a sampling of my writing style, try one of the recent short story collections.
