*Please tell us about your publications. I’ve published seven novels and many short stories, mostly science fiction. See the bio below for specific titles. I love the interplay of the logic science with the fun of imagination. I also love strong quirky characters.

What are your views on authors commenting on reviews? Never, never, never!
How do you deal with bad reviews? I try to avoid reading any reviews. This helps eliminate the problem!

Sort these into order of importance:
- Great characters
- Awesome world-building
