Just a note to let everyone know who I am and what my writing projects are. I was born and raised In Arizona, the Phoenix area (hot, phew). I am the middle son, out of 5 boys, of a fire and brimstone preacher. I guess that is why I love the what-if historical/futuristic fiction. I am a single parent of 5 children, 3 boys, 2 girls, and still have 2 teenagers at home (fun).
I manage a retail Produce Market in the east Mesa area and in my spare time, which is very limited as you might expect, I write books. I am also a movie buff and am obsessed with my computer.

My projects include:
Utopian Life series -- Utopia Begins being the first book HF/R. you can find free chapters, if you are interested, on
http://www.amazon.com/Utopia-Begins-Dav ... hf_p_img_1

The second book of the series is halfway finished entitled The New Paradise and will be available hopefully the first of the year.

The final one that I have in the oven is called Ice City which should be out sometime next year, it is very ancient HF and follows a line to present day.

There are 7 others in the works but really don't apply to this forum so I won't discuss them unless someone is interested.
