About This Guy

In 2015, I formed a team of authors, and we collaborated to create a shared-world, one where our stories could coexist and intersect in a single epic science fiction saga. We established Kōsa Press, LLC to produce the series, hired an editorial team, and commissioned famed Polish sci-fi and fantasy painter, Piotr Foksowicz, to paint the cover. Interspecies Volume 1 is the first shared-world anthology of a planned total of four in the series.

The Science Fiction and Fantasy Association of New Zealand nominated my co-author Woelf Dietrich’s story “Babylon’s Song,” which appears in Interspecies, for the 2017 Sir Julius Vogel Award, Best Novella, one of New Zealand’s most prestigious honors for speculative fiction. This year we published a prequel book to this series titled Armistice, and we’re currently hard at work on Interspecies Volume 2.

Prior to this sci-fi project, my literary short fiction has appeared in various journals, including the Berkeley Fiction Review, the Porter Gulch Review, and NANO Fiction. In January 2017, I was humbled to have my short story “Victor Mula’s Earth Dream” published in the popular anthology series, The Future Chronicles. I also offer my services as a developmental fiction editor and writing coach and have been helping authors and new writers realize their highest writing potential for over fifteen years.
