No career should be a dragonfly in amber.
For the past several months if not years I’ve been transitioning my career away from a role I had outgrown.
It wasn’t boredom so much as completion that drove me to move on.
It’s a career that began quite a bit differently than I’d imagined.
Doesn’t that always seem to be the way?
A tremendous amount of work has gone into this process.
Most of it behind the scenes. Read: Internally.
I am proud of what I’ve accomplished and excited about the path before me.
I‘m finally where I intended to be. Not that that will keep me from exploring the new and undiscovered and making changes as appropriate and necessary.
I have been updating my web presence to reflect changes associated with the transition and will continue to do so. As part of these changes I have updated my bio page, adding a section on why I am focusing on science fiction.
No need to check it out. Just keep reading.
Why science fiction?
I’ve been looking at the sky all my life.
Usually through windows.
Night or day.
But especially at night.
The sky is a doorway that separates our self-imagined existence from the realm of infinite possibility. In writing science fiction, I can share my experiences from both sides of the doorway with others.
Experiences that transcend what is an accepted but often limiting reality.
Why parallel dimensions?
I’ve contemplated the idea this reality isn’t the only one since I was seven and asked my dad how he could be so certain we weren’t living in someone else’s snow globe.
My contemplation took on more significance after a Near Death Experience left me without a doubt there are other dimensions.
I’ve been living with this awareness for decades. It has never been irreconcilable with any other part of my life.
In my stories, I explore various aspects of life lived in a world where multiple dimensions are not only an accepted fact, they are embraced through experience.
Who better to help create wonderful stories than characters from cultural backgrounds completely unknown and foreign?
The possibilities – like the skies – are endless
