This is a place for everything YA--from authors, reviewers, or just readers! If you write reviews for a young adult novel, you can post your link here, or if your looking for suggestions or a place to get someone to review your book, this is it.
I grew up in San Diego, finishing college at CSUSM with a degree in Computer Science. In the summer of 2002, I worked at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in New Mexico. From there my journey took me to the Bay Area to work at NASA Ames Research Center for a year, then at Lawrence Livermore National Lab for four years. It was during this time that I started tossing around the idea of becoming a writer, so I began writing a journal and notes on a story I was developing. My career, after LLNL, took me to the Naval Postgraduate School, where I worked on a government project called JIEDDO. Now I am in Salt Lake City, working as a software engineer.
My career involves scientific and mathematic programming. I write on the side. I find that the two areas of work give me a balance – a balance between exercising my right brain and my left brain. If one side of my brain gets tired, the other takes over. It works well. =o)
As for my hobbies, I have been reading fantasy and science fiction books ever since I was a teenager. I started with the classics: Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Jordan, then moved on from there. I love reading all different genres of fiction and non-fiction. When it comes to reading, I don’t discriminate.
My other hobbies are skiing, swimming, writing, cooking, and drinking wine!
