I began writing when I was about eight or nine when I discovered the old Royal portable typewriter in our back closet. There was still some ink on the ribbon, and I found some odd pieces of paper, and wrote my first tiny stories, maybe a couple hundred words. I still have them somewhere. It took me forever to find the keys.
I continued to write small stories, most of which are long lost. The oldest one I have is from 1962, called “Sand,” which I wrote as a junior in high school in Arizona. I got an A- on it. It will appear in a collection of other early tales which will come out some time.
I finally published two stories, “Sand Painting” in Amazing in 1983, and “Carrion Troll” in Sorcerer's Apprentice, also in 1983. Much later I contributed stories to the Blood of Ten Chiefs anthologies, five of which were published, the sixth volume was cancelled before publication.
There were also several non-fiction books, computer science for young readers. I have them around somewhere.
