Notes on "Origins: Remote Series Book 1" - The path this one took surprised me. It was originally intended to feature the male character. His girlfriend Cassie was slated to be a bit character. But she had a different idea. Within a very short time she she simply stepped in and took over without any conscious effort on my part. From there I simply bowed to the inevitable and she became the driving force in the work. She is already in firm control of Book 2 and I see no hope of wresting the thing away from her.


Notes About Me

I began writing in a roundabout way. I was 44 years old and had just sold a business. Being unemployed I spent a lot of time piddling around with this or that. One night I sat down and wrote up a quick little piece on my involvement with Little League Baseball with my kids. On a whim I sent it off to the local paper and forgot about it.

About a week later the editor called me up and asked if I was applying for the part-time sports reporters job. I wasn't, but he asked me to give it a try. Man, that was a fun job. Paid next to nothing but I had a great time with it. The sports editor was also brand new and we became friends. I not only did games but feature pieces and eventually turned out a weekly column that a lot of fun to write. I was pretty much given a free hand and each week became a challenge to write the goofiest things I could think up.

From there the sports editor and I began writing for websites as a team, providing news and preseason reports on sports teams, concert reviews, and other such stuff. That work has continued on a limited basis over the last few years as I've deployed overseas to do work for a defense company.

The short stories I write I see as a training ground as I prepare myself for a longer work sometime in the future. What form it will take I have no clue and very little concern. I think things just come to you. When I begin a short story I usually just have a picture in my mind of a scene and the question becomes "How did this scene come to be?" or "Where does this go from here?" Then it's off to the races.While I eventually would like to do a full length book, and I will, right now I'm having fun with the short stories. But stay tuned because this scene could very well lead to something unexpected.
