About the Author
I am a 34 year old New Yorker. I have enjoyed spending time creating, listening to, and telling oral stories. My experiences with the open source community, time spent as a computer professional, and my own varied experiences inspired my first science fiction thriller, Thicker Than Blood. The story will continue in a four book series.
