In the weeks since Firmament: Reversal Zone was released, I’ve been very happy to see how readers have been enjoying it thus far. Honestly, I think it’s my favorite of the four books that are currently out. And I’ve actually been sitting on the idea since before the Firmament series even began–the basic premise was part of my very first sci-fi enterprise, Journey to Eternity. Like most early attempts of mine, this story was not much good at all, but I loved the idea of the reversal and tucked it away for later. More than ten years later.

About half the time I’m driving–to work, to church, traveling, or just running errands–I like to listen to podcasts, lectures, sermons, audiobooks, etc. I like to feel I’m being productive, to not just drive but also to try to improve my mind. The other half of the time, I need to unwind and I like to play music. Usually Pandora over my bluetooth speaker.

Once Upon a Time or Of Kingdoms and Haircuts
“Once upon a time, in a magical kingdom far, far away, there was a wealthy, brave, talented, noble, intelligent, daring, valiant, and strikingly handsome young prince named James T. Kirk.”
Montgomery sighed. He should have known.
The thin young Doctor McCoy mused as if trying to remember where he’d heard that name before.
Spock raised one … Keep readingPosted in Writing | Tagged comedy, fanfics, fanfiction, medieval, short stories, Star Trek, storytelling | 2 Comments April 16, 2015
It’s been far too long since I shared one of my Star Trek fanfics, so while I work on my post about Neil Crater, I’m going to pull one out of the archives. Laugh and enjoy!
A Friendly Game
Hearts Have Been Broken
Montgomery looked up to make sure he’d heard right. “What did you say, laddie?”
“Checkmate, I said checkmate.” The thin young Doctor McCoy looked irritated. “Don’t you know what checkmate means?”
“I do, but I’m beginning to think you don’t,” was Montgomery’s mild answer. James Kirk, who sat across from the … Keep readingPosted in Writing | Tagged Captain Kirk, Doctor McCoy, fanfics, fanfiction, funny, humor, Scotty, short stories, silly, Spock, Star Trek | 4 Comments April 24, 2014
I wrote this fanfic a few years ago as an experiment in writing a story entirely in dialogue with no non-dialogue parts whatsoever. I’m fairly happy with how it turned out, and I hope you enjoy it!
“How’s everything been?”
“Everything has been going quite well, thank you.”
“Doggone it, I’m trying to make conversation here. The least you could do is cooperate.”
“I apologize. I was not aware of your intentions, Doctor. If I may ask, to what shall I attribute your sudden and surprising interest in speaking with me?”
“Does … Keep readingPosted in Writing | Tagged dialogue, Doctor McCoy, experiments, fanfics, fanfiction, sci-fi, science fiction, short stories, Spock, Star Trek | 4 Comments ← Older posts
