However, sheer bloody-mindedness has led to sales to Writers of the Future, Interzone, Clarkesworld, and a few others. I look forward to meeting you. Twitter: @stvgskll.

David W. Goldman   Web site  
David W. Goldman grew up reading -- and planning to write -- science fiction. After winning a university poetry award, though, he was shanghaied from his writing career by a time-consuming Boston trade school. He subsequently moved to Puget Sound, where he further sidetracked himself by abandoning his trade and becoming a software company. A decade later he convinced somebody else to provide him regular work hours and a steady paycheck, and the sudden novelty of free evenings and weekends -- plus a writing workshop with Ursula Le Guin -- reminded him of his original plan. David currently lives in Portland, Oregon with his multi-talented wife, two appropriately hyperactive cats (Dash and Apostrophe), two digital pianos, three PCs, and eleven (mostly vintage) Macintoshes.

I play football and dress-up, drink whisky and ride my bike to work, where I'm a webmaster. I attempt to write character-oriented "hard" science fiction. Someday I might even succeed. I sell poems now and then, but don't hold that against me.

He has one wife, seven children, and three hamsters. By day, he works for Lockheed Martin on classified government programs, which not even the hamsters are allowed to know about.

He hopes you enjoy their work.
