Thanks for joining! What brings you to our group?

This group was recommended to me when I joined a church-based writer's group; I was told this group had a lot of scifi and fantasy expertise that I could draw on to develop my scifi series.

What would you like to accomplish in your writing each month?


What is, or are the things that hold you back from your writing goals? When you write, do you write fiction, non-fiction? What categories does your writing land?

Time management. I have a full-time engineering job that sometimes requires long hours, while I'm also trying to maintain contact with my friends and family.

As a condition of acceptance, to help Member Authors, are you willingto purchase one Member Title a month from Amazon, read it and review it? Yes or No?

I almost exclusively write soft science fiction novels, though I sometimes toy with fantasy or hard scifi or even short stories. I want to see my books in the same section with Timothy Zahn, Lois McMaster Bujold, and Wen Spencer.

Are you published? Have you published? Do you want to publish? Have you considered Self-Publishing?

CWP is publishing my first book! My series is a good candidate for traditional publishing. I want traditional publishing experience before considering self publishing.


Aerospace engineer by day, scifi writer by night. I've been writing scifi since middle school and pursued engineering to pay for food and enhance my scifi.
