I have been working and consulting in the software engineering field for the past 30 years. I started working in technical support and I'm now managing and directing several teams around the world. The exciting part of technology is how it's constantly changing. It never gets boring or dull!
Being an avid reader since I was a little kid, I have always had a passion for storytelling and writing. Having the technical background helped with navigating the seemingly endless road of complexities and challenges of self-publishing. My first book, Bit By Bit, came to me as a random story idea. It took about a year to 'think' about it and then another year to write it. It was an incredible experience to finally complete it. Over the next year, I wrote another technothriller called Carbon Copy. At this point, I started to pay attention to the kind of stories that I liked to read. I recently completed Quantum Mind, as one of the books in the three book series called Quantum Genesis.
An adventurer at heart, some of my hobbies are scuba diving, flying, and hang gliding. Flying through the congested New York controlled airspace, hang gliding off a mountain top, or scuba diving on the Great Barriet Reef has led to some interesting experiences and sights that very few people have the chance to visit.
- Anyone can have a great story, but
- you need to be a good storyteller to
- make it real and inspire imagination.
