Howdy, name’s Dean. I’m a part time aspiring science fiction author, musician of ill repute, and professional scoundrel. After having adventures in every clime and place, I’m now a family man who crushes dreams from the comfort of a desk. My less active lifestyle means that I’ve finally got some time to write down the stories that have popped into my head along the way.

I’ve been reading everything I could get my hands on since I could reach the shelves, but my favorites have always been science fiction and fantasy. My science fiction reread shelf includes greats like Frank Herbert, Larry Niven, Jerry Pournelle, Robert Heinlein, and Greg Bear; Timothy Zahn’s inestimable Star Wars sequels, an entire row of trashy Battletech novels, Neal Stephenson, everything William Gibson ever wrote, and David Drake’s Hammer’s Slammers. I hope the influence of each will shine through in my own work, and you’ll enjoy the ride.
