Writing Again

The week before last, I was in Mexico City speaking at a software engineering conference. Unfortunately, I picked up a nasty intestinal bug which has hung on through last week. This is thus the first time in two full weeks that I’ve been able to write anything. While it’s great to be working on my second Hell Hole book, the progress is slow. Hard to concentrate on the story and what I’m writing when I’m feeling crappy. Hopefully, some of the new stuff will be good enough to keep.

About Donald

A computer geek by day, Donald Firesmith works as a system and software engineer helping the US Government acquire large, complex software-intensive systems. In this guise, he has authored seven technical books, written numerous software- and system-related articles and papers, and spoken at more conferences than he can possibly remember. He is also proud to have been named a Distinguished Engineer by the Association of Computing Machinery, although his pride is tempered somewhat worrying whether the term “distinguished” makes him sound more like a graybeard academic rather than an active engineer whose beard is still more red than gray. By night and on weekends, his alter ego writes modern paranormal fantasy, apocalyptic science fiction, action and adventure novels and relaxes by handcrafting magic wands from various magical woods and mystical gemstones. His first foray into fiction is the book Magical Wands: A Cornucopia of Wand Lore written under the pen name Wolfrick Ignatius Feuerschmied. He lives in Crafton, Pennsylvania with his wife Becky, his son Dane, and varying numbers of dogs, cats, and birds.
