Wanted on twelve systems for a crime he didn’t commit, the author grew up watching anything and everything sci-fi: Battlestar Galactica, Doctor Who, Star Trek, Space: 1999, Star Wars, and The A-Team. Oh, and Airwolf. Author is elbowing me in the ribs painfully–I am to emphasize his love for Airwolf, and not screw it up by making it sarcastic or hipster-ironic like I always do. Author wishes he could fly a secret government helicopter with Ernest Borgnine behind him in the dickie seat? (That’s what he said, trust me.)
Author’s early years were spent running from wastelanders in the hills of southern Ohio. After college he turned away glittering job offers in food service and insurance and worked for the post office. He taught Bad English in China and Germany, became a Master of Teaching English Thing, joined an internet startup for the free lunches, learned about the science of fire (this can’t be a real thing), and worked on a 911 ambulance (he’s still working there, trust me). In author’s free time he stays one foot ahead of the federales and gives his assistant a raise of 20,000 kopecks and a car and Diner’s Club.
Author says to tell you his literary influences are Hemingway and Raymond Carver but I can see him through the basement window and he only reads garbage Star Trek fan-fic and that Alan Partridge biography over and over.

These days Jan Michael Vincent doesn’t look like Jan Michael Vincent
It’s just like Santa, friend. If you can’t believe in the eternal beauty of JMV, what can you believe in? That’s right––Richard Hatch.
Love that “spitting image” wordplay!
ps….Forgot to say it’s hysterical how you write about yourself in the third person. And….Raymond Carver Rocks!
Thank you! Raymond is indeed, a person that achieves ‘Rocking’
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Now I can die happy knowing that I wasn’t the only fan of Airwolf.
I suppose Jan Michael Vincent had to fill the void that Larry Wilcox left when Chips rode off into the sunset.
Larry Wilcox is a saint! And it’s pronounced “C.H.i.P.s.”
Coincidentally, at 4 a.m. I met a whole gaggle of Chippies when a woman high on crystal plowed into a field and ran down the highway. They don’t like being called that.
I love walking on Phil Collins, against all odds.
He’s luxuriously soft
really glad to have come across your awesome blog… 🙂 last but not least: I did visit Amish country several years ago and I lived nearby NASA(Houston, TX) for 5 years!!! small world, eh?!… 🙂
Glad you liked the blog! I’ve been to Houston, but basically just to the Space Center.
