What writing genre(s) do you prefer and why?

Sci Fi/Fantasy because it is the closest category that describes what I have written. If I could create my own perfect genre description, it would be Metaphysical Fiction, or Metaphyction.

What have you found frustrating about your creative abilities or process?

I have no problem with writer's block. If anything, life gets in the way of my writing time.

What authors inspire you, or have influenced your writing?

Ray Bradbury, Arthur C Clarke, William Faulkner, Ursula K LeGuin, Ann Rice, Isaac Asimov, Dan Brown, Stephen King


I am 52 years old, living in Ben Lomond for the last 22 years. I have finished a Sci-Fi/Fantasy novel, and am about 1/2 way through editing it. I want to self-publish, so I have run an Indiegogo campaign to raise $ to pay for editing and promotion.
