I was a software engineer, but I've now switched to my second career as a novelist writing fiction.
I've traveled to China, Hong Kong, Italy, France, England, and parts of the US. There's still various places I want to see, especially Greece, Japan, India, Egypt, and Russia. I feel like it's about time to do some traveling again. I generally go for long periods. Last time, I was in London for 6 weeks.
I enjoy trying different foods and exploring places, visiting museums, seeing new things.
I graduated from the Clarion West and Odyssey Writers Workshops for science fiction, fantasy and horror. They called me the Plot Doctor. I was really good at taking various elements in their stories and figuring out a unique and logical conclusion.
Blending in. I've been asked by people in China, Taiwan, and Italy for directions. They thought I was a local. Go figure.
