Science Fiction & Fantasy Author and Illustrator
I don't have an expensive camera or special lenses, but I do enjoy taking pictures now and again.
Some of these pictures have found their way into magazines or onto the cover of eShorts. Below you'll find the original photos, a bit of information about where they were taken, and then, a look at how and where they appeared.

This photo was taken at Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
It was used for the cover of my Adventure eShort: "Assassins" as a stand-in for the canyons and mountains of Konur Prime.
EShort is no longer available, but I still like the cover.
The following photographs were taken in various locations at Winterthur Gardens & Museum, Delaware. They were originally in color, and are magically now printed in black & white. They appear in the 2011 issue of "The Gunpowder Review."
The following photographs were taken in Scotland in July - August 2009. They were originally in color, but through the magic of computers, some of them were printed in black and white. They appeared in the 2009 issue of "The Gunpowder Review," a literary magazine that publishes the work of women. I'm one of the founding editors.
