|Your personal background.|
|I'm a science fiction writer raised on the classics of Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, Harry Harrison among others, I focus on character-based fiction, fascinating plots and solid story-telling.|
My interest in science and technology began early. At the age of six my parents allowed me to stay up late into the night to watch the television broadcast of Neil Armstrong stepping on to the surface of the moon. From that day I was hooked on everything related to science and space.
I write about science, technology and politics on my blog at www.davidmkelly,net. My short story “Inser” was published in Canadian science fiction magazine Neo-opsis and I'm currently working on a novel, codenamed MOE.
I worked for many years in project management and software development. Previous interests have included IPSC combat (target) pistol shooting, crew chief on a drag racing team, and several years as bass player/vocalist in a heavy rock band. I also managed to fit in some "real work" in manual jobs from digging ditches and worked on everything from assembly/production lines to loading trucks in a haulage company.
Originally from the wild and woolly region of Yorkshire, England, I emigrated to Canada in 2005 and lives in Northern Ontario with my patient and supportive wife, Hilary. When not writing, I can be found driving my classic Corvette ZR-1 or exploring the hiking trails around Lake Superior.
|Your opinions about Asteroids@home|
|My latest novel takes place in part in the asteroid belt and I've used many of the great online resources in researching it. I thought it would be great to give something back in some small way.|
