He learned to type at 12 in order to earn his first typewriter so that he could start writing on his own. Between sidetracks into the US Army, board gaming, software engineering and parenthood, he continued to write, making his first sale in 1986.

He has collaborated on five Dragonriders of Pern novels, written three solo Pern novels, and has written numerous short stories, written animation screenplays, designed board games, and has written and edited seveal non-fiction works.
