Wayne has been an avid reader all his life. His favorite genre is probably sci-fi/fantasy, although he has read a LOT of fiction over the years.
Some of it has been very good, others make you think “I could do better than that.” So this book is Wayne’s attempt to “Do better than that”.
Wayne recently retired from a 40+ year career in IT, mainly as a programmer and developer. The field changes rapidly, to say the least. Now is a chance to move in new directions. One of those new directions is writing and publishing fiction.
Wayne and his wife Loretta live in Springfield, IL. They enjoy traveling and visiting extended family.
By the way, why are sci-fi and fantasy lumped into one category? Yes, some books combine elements of both. Even so, it just seems kind of lazy to lump them together.
