My Writing


I’m Mack, and I write Science Fiction – for the most part. Writing is something I did, once upon a time long ago, but which I picked up again fairly recently – after stumbling over old boxes with manuscripts in storage. It is a learning curve, so much has changed from older days. But it is interesting, a challenge and it is fun. But it is a work in progress, above all.

Several stories are out, more are in the pipeline, and in the mean time there is a trilogy in the works (The Triptych Study of which part one is currently in editing) and the fictional universe Of Suns And Spheres continues to unfold. I regularly post pieces, experiments and shorts on this blog here, as well as on Facebook.

By the way, I also read Science Fiction. A medical professional would probably call me an addict, always looking for the next tale of imaginations and explorations even further than the back of the next beyond. Never hesitate to get in touch if you find, or create something – I always welcome more to read!

Thin Blue Line - Part One

A story of a young Lieutenant’s first command. A bastard mission, as she calls it, one where there is a lot than meets the eye. She has the technology, a sturdy ship and a clear set of directives. Still, she only has a bunch of local volunteer pilots, and no information on what she’s about to face.
