I write to explore ideas and how they may affect humanity, whether it be tomorrow, decades in the future, or centuries. I wish to show the individual struggling to pursue their goals and desires, to build on their success, and to overcome their failures. I long to see how society and the culture treat the individual, allowing me to provide a non-standard insight that speaks to today.
What are the consequences of the individual going-it-alone, enlisting help from friends, or have another take care of everything? Can the individual define happiness and achieve it? Can the individual keep it once they have it?
Science fiction provides a rich landscape to examine these questions while bringing in elements of romance, suspense, and mystery. Legends like Clarke and Asimov have come before me, making me and a multitude of others ponder. I hope to stimulate the same curiosity, even if it’s in a single reader.
