Reflections on Leprecon

12x18_print_templateLeprecon 2014 has come and gone. I had a great time meeting and talking to people in the dealers’ room. We had some really good discussions on my panels. It is great to see so many people interested in writing genre fiction. All in all a great time and I am already looking forward to next year.  Here are a couple of pics of my wife and I all dressed up.

My Panels at Leprecon 2014

12x18_print_templateI just confirmed I will be sitting in on two panels Sunday afternoon at Leprecon. I will have my table down in the vending room all beginning Friday May 9th in the evening and into Sunday, May 11th. I’ll be signing books and chatting, but no singing, (sorry). Stop by, it will be a great time.


How would our world be different is Rome never fell, or the South negotiated a draw, or if they built a full sized replica of the USS Enterprise in Las Vegas instead of the Fremont Street Experience?  Can you change one small detail and change the world? Or are the currents of history so deep as to be ultimately inevitable?

Phoenix Comicon is Coming

phx_comiconThe annual Nerdvanna that is Phoenix Comicon is rapidly approaching; May 23 – 26. I will be in costumed attendance Friday to Sunday. I always enjoy this event and have had a great time every year. This marks the first year that I will be participating in events. I have been given the opportunity to sit on three panel discussions. I am very excited at the opportunity.

The panels all are within the Star Trek universe, they are:

  • How Star Trek Changed Science Fiction – Friday at 3:00 pm
  • Deep Space Nine 20 Years Later – Friday at 4:30 pm
  • Aliens of Star Trek – Saturday at 10:30 am

Please check the official program for the room locations.

If you guessed that I am a huge Star Trek fan you would be correct. I am honored to have this opportunity to share my knowledge and love of Star Trek. So if you find yourself at Comicon this year stop by and join in the discussion.
