Fly-on-the-wall observer and writer. Born skeptic, rationalist, maverick thinker. Always seeking the hidden order in complexity and chaos. Love speculative science fiction, fiction that asks questions, offers challenges, gets people thinking and/or hot under the collar. Obsessed with issues of freedom and power, which are translating into novels involving various forms of slavery, actual and de facto. Have written one novel, and its sequel, in which a country's culture and economy are tied to slavery, both published on Smashwords and Amazon. I've also published Privileged Lives and Other Lies, my 2011 NaNo novel, and two very long short stories.
Currently blogging a series of posts about the development of this year's NaNo novel. These are intended to serve as an archive for me, and an example, for other writers, of how the various elements of a novel are dealt with. Strictly from one person's perspective, of course. http://writingcycle.wordpress.com/tracking-new-serfdom/
