As a published finalist in the L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume 29, XXIX I was asked to write a 200 word bio. Here it is, for free. To read my story, you will need to buy the book.

Chrome Oxide was created as an internet persona to reflect his collection of music related books, vinyl, CDs, DVDs and cassettes.

He started life with a normal name roaming the wilds of Los Angeles. It didn't take long before he developed his twin passions of listening to music and reading science fiction and fantasy.

His formal schooling ended with an accounting degree from California State University Northridge. He then attempted to exploit his twin passions by becoming an accountant. Twenty years passed before he realized that seventy hour work weeks didn't leave him much time for music or reading. At that point he switched careers to computer consulting.

Now with more free time he accidentally became a recording engineer. His recordings are now available on CDs, DVDs and the internet.

Recently, because of inadequate discouragement, he started writing science fiction and fantasy. For the last two and a half years he has been torturing his writers group by learning two bad habits for every one he fixes. They thought he was ready to start submitting stories. He didn't. You can now judge for yourself. This is his first fiction story published for a wide audience. It won't be the last.

Sometimes people ask me why most of my stories have a specific attitude. I'm not sure, but I think it may have something to do with the paper clips I use to hold the stories while I'm working on them. :-)

Writers are always talking about being able to sit and write where they won't be interrupted. This is one of the many places in Southern California where I can be found working on stories. Nobody ever trys to talk with me when the band is playing and I'm sitting next to the amp. :-)

As an added bonus, while I'm writing, I'm also audio recording that band. While it isn't clear from the picture, I'm sitting behind one of my two microphone stands (the other stand is at the other end of the stage) topped with an Audio Technica AT-801 Omnidirectional Electret Condensor Microphone with wires running down to my Fostex FR-2 Field Recorder sitting in it's blue case.

By the end of the evening when I pack up my gear, I have a CD quality stereo recording of whatever bands I'm recording and at least a few hundred more words on the story I happen to be working on.
