My hobbies are much what I do for a living and a few other things: reading, writing, historical re-enactments, forging blades, throwing myself out of aircraft, hiking, Karate, Kung Fu, shooting, archery, fine liquors, fine food, traveling and ranting at the political, social and moral state of the world.
I met Gail at a science fiction convention in 1991. We had a one-night stand. Then we had another. The second one has lasted 12 years so far. We have the typical 2.3 kids. One of each.
Okay, we have Morrigan, Eric and some cats.
