Hell Holes 3 Backstory and Flashback

I just finished writing some more backstory for Aileen O’Shannon, the main character from whose point of view I am writing Hell Holes 3: To Hell and Back.

[WARNING: SPOILER ALERT!] I love the fact that beautiful, young Aileen is actually some seventeen hundred years old. That provides so many opportunities and locations for providing backstory via flashbacks. It also allows me to research interesting locales, such as the very top of the Paramount Building in the wee hours of December 3rd, 1926.

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.
