I’m a writer, editor, and game developer. I’ve been writing fantasy and science fiction for more than 20 years, and I’ve been published in major markets. My background in technical documentation (writing, editing, and production) spans about the same length of time.
I’m also an avid gamer, and have been teaching myself game-development tools so I can make my own games. I’m a big fan of the UDK, Blender 3D, Audacity, and GIMP. The amazing things you can create with free tools take my breath away.
