I began writing last year. Since that time, I’ve written more than 400 000 words. I’ve always written the best book I could at the time, but as I learned more of the craft, I’ve begun going back and extensively revising my novels. If you saw them before as a beta reader, you should know that the books on Amazon aren’t the ones you saw.
I’m a retired soldier, retired teacher of science, Mensa member, Facebooker, experimenter. My nonfiction is often published on my other blog, jlknapp505.com. You might like what you find there.
I have many interests and have had others in the past; experience, along with research, is the stuff that colors my books. As an example, one book has information about horses. I was a horse owner, rider, and breeder for several years. My name is in the AQHA breeder’s records, so I know a bit about the subject. I try to follow that rule, always base a story on experience or extensive research. What I write about I’ve often done. But it’s science fiction, so I’ve not done everything in the books!
