Loyal Reader is going to kill me: I’ve not finished my novel-in-progress yet – the thing about having a co-author is that you can only do so much of the writing on your own – but I’ve just started a new story about the mysterious Mr. Livingston. (If not for him, JG and GM would never have met, neither would have met DD, DD wouldn’t have developed an interest in high-tech things… and then where would we be?) Sometimes characters continue to have interesting lives after they appear in a story, and it is often a good idea for the author to check in from time to time to find out what everyone has been up to. I am continuing to work on the novel, by the way, as much as I am able. My clone-sibling and I discussed the option of including what actually happened to the Excalibur as the first part of the story, and then decided that doing so would give away too much of the story, too soon, getting rid of a major source of plot tension later. So small pieces of that are instead going to be woven into the story as it is currently written, the better to keep readers suspicious concerning certain characters. 🙂
For several years, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom (editor).
I'm physically disabled, and I currently live with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far.
My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have eight cats. I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.
