Transplanted Tennessee Volunteer in Arizona. Wide range of interests. Loved fresh water (especially fly fishing) and deep sea fishing with my granddad in my younger days. Favorite non-sci-fi book: The Art of Racing in the Rain. Favorite sci-fi authors: Peter F. Hamilton, Kim Stanley Robinson, Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, Edgar Rice Burroughs (John Carter series), Ray Bradbury, and H.G. Wells. Lead a simple, quiet life full of technology toys and time with friends. Loved competing in events with my mare when she was alive.
