By day, I'm a business jet mechanic. By night... I am also a business jet mechanic. (Swing shift is fun.../s) In my time off, though, I write fix for Pacific Rim, Star Wars Rebels, and Ace Combat
What inspired me to write:
I've always had stories and adventures running through my head when I get some down time, but I never put them down in writing. Too personal or too out there to be comfortable sharing.
Then I found this place (again... I did some reading here a few years back as a lurker over on the Stargate SG-1 fandom side) after watching Pacific Rim, and decided to put some stuff down on the computer. Forged In Fire was the first result of that, and has... kinda taken on a life of its own. I'm also rather enjoying it.
Dogs or cats: I've had both, and don't have a preference.
PC or Mac: PC. I hate Apple computers.
Sports teams: Niners and SF Giants, baby!
Favorite sport: Air racing. (Look up Reno Air Races to get a good idea of what I'm talking about)
Halo, CoD, or BF: Halo. By far, Halo.
Music tastes: depends on the situation, and even which character I'm writing at the time. (For example, in Forged in Fire, Newt's themes tend to be from The Glitch Mob, while Herc is heavily in the direction of AC/DC.)
Passions: Aviation and spaceflight, mechanical stuff, military history.
Words of wisdom:
"Never argue with drunks, stupid people, conspiracy theorists, or internet trolls. They'll just drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience."
"There is no such thing as 'overkill.' There is only 'Open fire!' and ' reload.'"
"Mad science means never stopping to ask, 'What's the worst thing that could happen?'"
"Failure is not an option. It is mandatory. The option is whether or not you let failure be the last thing you do."
