Dave is chicken coop builder by late afternoon, general manager of a veterinary hospital by day, father early mornings, cook late evenings, and husband throughout. This, after spending umpteen years in the software industry wearing both engineering and marketing hats and nearly a decade completing an MBA. Ultimately, Dave hopes to get back into writing.

  6. Heat

    The Daily Planet, electronic edition, flickered across his duct-taped Kindle, which after a decade of abuse struggled against a failing battery and a display pocked with scratches and grime. The news? Nothing new. People out of work. The city in a stat...

  7. Splinter 2: Awake

    The phone buzzed. The captain didn’t pick up. It was dark in her cabin and the clock read 0210. It must be a mistake. It wasn’t. It buzzed again, this time angrier. “What is it?” “Captain, sorry to bother you.” ̶...

  8. Splinter, 1: Adrift

    “What the…? Vic, come here. Take a look, what the hell’s this?” Victor took three graceful leaps and ended up right behind Jake’s console. Quite a feat considering the ship’s close quarters. He pointed to an blip tha...
