Name: Fred Warren
Home: Kansas, USA
Family: I’m married to the world’s most enchanting woman, have 3 kids (one son out on his own, one son recently graduated from college, and a daughter in college), and I support 2 dogs who are long on noise and short on brains.
Occupation: Military Tech Support. Retired from the Air Force after 24 years of service, and still serving proudly as a slimy defense contractor.
I enjoy playing around with computers, hiking/camping, birdwatching, stargazing, puzzles of any sort, and recreational reading (science fiction and fantasy are my favorites, but I’ll read just about anything).
I also like to write, and I’ve been trying to do that more seriously over the past several years. I have no illusions of being a great writer or otherwise “all that and a bag of chips.” I’m learning, having fun, and seeing how far I can go with it. Check the Publications tab for my current stuff in print and online.
My first novel, The Muse, a modern fantasy tale of inspiration both divine and diabolical, hit the streets in November 2009. A short-story anthology called Odd Little Miracles followed in July 2011, and my latest book, The Seer, a sequel to The Muse, was published in November 2011. There’s a third novel underway. Short stories are my first love, and I write a lot of them, both independently and in conjunction with Avenir Eclectia, a multi-author shared-world microfiction project run by my publisher, Splashdown Books. Again, check the Publications tab for a current list.
My original Articles of Confrederation for the blog are here, although I think I may have violated the prohibition on Top Ten lists at least once, and the focus of this site is now mostly on my writing. Smaller updates and miscellaneous oddments happen on Twitter (@Frederation), which also feeds my Facebook page, and I also cross-post to Google+ (+Fred Warren).
