Location Oakland, CA, United States
Introduction I was born in the Bronx and lived on the East Coast, mostly in New York, until the cruel forces of economics told me to go elsewhere. Now I'm starting over again in the San Francisco Bay area, where I have family. My goal in life is to become a professional science fiction writer. I write and edit Fantastic Worlds, a fantastic fiction blogzine. I am very happily married.
