Profile Information

Which Portland neighborhood do you call home? Or, are you Moving to Portland?
None as of yet!
About Me:
I love adventure always looking for it. I live in Sin City trying to escape to a less high traffic pulse pumping city than the one I currently reside in. I'm huge into sports, science, history, and outdoor adventure. Believe me I used to love people and be the guy to always help a stranger but after living in this muck of a cut-throat business city environment it has transformed my perception of people : (
What do you love about Portland?
Well we'll see I've just heard and read about it in books. Hopefully soon I can venture to the city I have so much interest in!
My music:
Gosh I love all types from Classical to old school hip-hop. I listen to a lot of rock, alternative, or whatever just fits the mood. Chili Peppers, Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan, Bush, Kanye West just some random types of music my ears churn to.
What's your favorite Portland neighborhood and why?
Hopefully I'll find out one day!

Hi again, GrEg. Well, you asked about the fact-finding side of novel-writing. I spend about a week on Internet research before I write the first draft of each and every chapter. But in the case of Tractrix, I had been to Las Vegas many times beforehand, besides, so I felt very comfortable with the descriptions. And the follow-up was even better. I had already had a tour of Yucca Mountain and had driven around the military installations previous to writing the novel. Afterwards, I followed the exact steps of the characters and stayed at the same hotel in Beatty and the same hotels on the Strip, and ate in the same restaurants. I had just come back from doing the same down in the Yucatan. I went to the Loltun Caverns and Uxmal, and stayed in the same hotel in Merida. It really brought my own characters to life for me.
You mentioned the novel Area 51. Yes, I read that long ago. But I've always had an interest in the mystery surrounding it. I've watched all the SciFi channel shows and also the Discovery channel shows. To augment that, I took an interest in Graham Hancock's theories about the beginnings of civilization. My novels just take it a step further to suggest many more civilizations that preceded them.

Hi, GrEg. Nice to meet you. I find your profile interesting. Did you realize my first-in-the-series novel takes place at the military installations outside Las Vegas (before it heads down to the Yucatan)? Since you like science and math, you fit right in with Frank, my main character (the ex-aerospace engineer). Let me check my notes on that career. I finished writing Tractrix in 2004. It's been awhile.
I'd like to invite you to visit my author site because I have photos of yours truly at the racetrack in Las Vegas, along with police cars in training nearby. I love the mystery surrounding the city, if not the lights and action within it. I appreciate your comments.
My best
