The planets and robots in science fiction movies. UFOs and ghosts. The Face on Mars. Characters yearning for adventure, home, peace, or love. Space tomatoes. The World Wide Web. Transhumanism.
These are just some of the fantasies and realities that influenced the person I became, and each helped to instill in me a love for science and technology, for the fantastic, and for writing. By the time Summer 2012 was coming to an end it was time to commit to my writing in a way I had never committed before. Writing had to become my first priority.
Welcome to my website, where you can follow my progress from first draft to published novel.
The emergence of an unexpected artificial intelligence will change the life of a young man who is already transitioning into the person she always wanted to be.
A man without a spacesuit awakens on Mars, not knowing his name or how he got there, but knowing that he failed and there is no escape from his despair. What follows is a journey through his memories and across the Martian surface, leading to the shattering end that left him in this situation, and a new beginning, if only he can believe in its possibility.
