My first love has always been about writing.  I wrote my first story when I was in the Third grade.  It was a story about a combat pilot in World War Two.  A.  I’m not a pilot   B.  My Dad was only eight years old when World War II started.

About | Bill EckelMy teacher thought it rather cheeky that I wrote about something I knew nothing about, but I’ve never let that stop me.  I’ve since learned the error of my ways, kinda, mostly.  Let’s talk about something else.

I’ve learned by the feet some very extinguished writers.  They booted my backside on more than one occasion trying to instill in me their knowledge.  Uh, make that distinguished writers.  They were still breathing last time I checked.

My favorite thing about writing is that my characters do what they are told.  Now if I could just get my wife to…never mind. As far as a real job, I was an Air Traffic Controller/Flight Service Station Specialist.  I learned my trade in the United States Navy.  I was a Westpac sailor.  I’ve got a lot of stories.  Some of them I can even tell in mixed company.

What’s New?

I’m going back to school.  University of Oklahoma, Professional Writing Curriculum.  One must hone their chops and keep them current. I have another sci/fi novel in the works.  This one is titled, Hard Kill.   It is a conflict between Humans and Transhumanists.  It has been lots of fun writing it.  It occurs on Pluto and Eris.  Cyborgs, AI’s, and humans try to survive together, good luck with that.
