I am a Science Fiction author and lover of most things with 'star' in the title.

I love writing, reading, and movies. I've always dreamed of writing novels. My dream is to travel this great wet dust ball meeting those with an equal passion for reading and writing stories.

I also grew up at the arcade. (What eighties kid didn't?) I grew a fondness for video games. My favorite genres include racing and Scifi games.

I do like to get out of the house on occasion. Sometimes, it clears the clutter living produces. Outdoorsy stuff I like camping, walking on the beach, and most of all stargazing. I also enjoy the rain, sunsets, and sunrises.

Dogs, cats, horses, etc. they seem to like me and I like them too.

What is the scariest thing you've ever done.
Gohan comments on Jan 18, 2018:
One day I was heading to work in my dad's 1986 Pontiac Trans Am. The 15 mile stretch of I-70 was clear. I reached the next town where I worked and took the exit. When I pressed on the brakes the pedal went to the floor. I pumped them to no avail. I was speeding toward the light on the traffic light on a busy street. I pulled the emergency brake and the rear wheels didn't lock. It had rained quite a bit the day before and I thought the mud would slow me down. I pushed the gear lever into neutral, aimed the car into the valley between the highway and the off-ramp. The car wasn't losing enough speed and at that speed if I turned sharp the car would've flipped. The thought entered my mind to push the gear lever into park, but I didn't. Instead I threaded the space between a pole and guy-wire. I hit the slope up to the surface street. It ramped me into the air over the lanes. Thankfully, they were empty at that moment. I slammed down on the other side of the surface street and drove down into the valley between the highway and the on-ramp. I had burned off enough speed to make a tight circle in the muddy grass. Luckily, I came out of the ordeal unscathed and the car was remarkably undamaged. Needless to say, I was late to work that day.

Are shorter people respected the same as taller people
Gohan comments on Jan 18, 2018:
I believe everybody deserves respect regardless of height, weight, gender, political beliefs, or religious beliefs. Respect is easily lost by action or inaction and difficult to regain.

Does religion interest you?
Gohan comments on Jan 10, 2018:
As a writer, I pay attention to the stories contained in religious texts for literary merit. I find the stories to be works of fiction until there's proof of it happening. And I still don't believe.
Is religion necessary in the world?
Gohan comments on Jan 10, 2018:
At one time religion may have been necessary to shape morals. Now we as humans are showing we can instill morals without the fear of eternally pissing off deities.

Do what makes you happy, because when it's all over there are no after credit scenes.

Thinkers.
Are you eclectic?

Great idea.
Are you an open or closet agnostic/atheist, and why?
Gohan comments on Jan 9, 2018:
I'm open. I like to treat people with respect regardless of what they believe. I enjoy hearing about other religious views. I'm not judgmental. You can say it's against my non-religion.
Life on other Planets? Yes or No?
Gohan comments on Jan 9, 2018:
The Fermi Paradox suggests there is a high probability of extraterrestrial life. So, I think keeping an open mind about the existence of ETs rather than denying the possibility is the better way to think. When proof presents itself maybe I'll feel a little better inside.
How many hours of sleep do you get at night?
Gohan comments on Jan 9, 2018:
I get 7-9 hours, usually.

Dating.
Gohan comments on Jan 7, 2018:
As long as the individuals involved are consenting adults, age is just a number. How others perceive should have no bearing on how two people feel for each other.
A lot of the religious people look down on atheist people and consider them to be immoral. Why do ...
Gohan comments on Jan 7, 2018:
It's possible that religious people those without religion having no commandments to guide them. They fear that individuals with such freedom will choose to act on those freedoms.
Do you trust easily or do you trust no one?
Gohan comments on Jan 7, 2018:
I see trust like a banker sees a loan. You determine whether to put your trust into someone based on their past merit. If you find they do not deserve that trust, and have burned a bridge with you, then you know never to gift that individual trust in the future, regardless of any future merit.
DO YOU PAY FOR THE FIRST DATE?
Gohan comments on Jan 7, 2018:
I don't think it has anything to do with sexual orientation. I feel on a first date splitting the check is apropos.
are you afraid of death?
Gohan comments on Jan 7, 2018:
I don't fear death, it is a natural part of life. I welcome death, but I won't do anything to hasten it. I do what I can to prolong my life, but when it happens it happens.

Gohan comments on Jan 7, 2018:

Do you use colloquialisms like “good lord” or “oh my god” despite them having religious ...
Gohan comments on Jan 7, 2018:
I got it from my dad, who got it from his parents. To me, the words have no meaning.
What do you think of Peace?
Gohan comments on Jan 7, 2018:
Peace is necessary in order for humanity to progress.
Any booklovers on this group? What authors/genres/topics do you like reading?
Gohan comments on Jan 6, 2018:
I'm a author with two novels published and one on the way. I love Science Fiction and that's what I enjoy writing. My favorite authors (and it's not me) is Alastair Reynolds, Ben Bova, and Stephen King (to limit to three.) Topics could range from revenge seeking captains to the discovery of new worlds. A hobby category would be great.
Do you have a favorite type of car?
Gohan comments on Jan 6, 2018:
1988 Pontiac Fiero GT
Is the universe static ?

Anyone ever get the feeling you're going to be forever alone? I often get the feeling that if ...
Gohan comments on Jan 6, 2018:
I get the feeling my perpetual solitude isn't based solely on my choices. Other's freedom to choose has it's effect. Some people can't handle some aspects of my personality. At least, this is what I tell myself.
How do you define it?
Gohan comments on Jan 6, 2018:
I see freedom as the ability to choose. If I choose to sit alone in silence, that is indeed freedom. When the loneliness overwhelms ones desire to sit alone in silence, it doesn't cease to be freedom, because it's your mind's choice to enact it's desire.
No religion is higher than humanity.
Gohan comments on Jan 6, 2018:
Indeed.
Do you like Christan music?
Gohan comments on Jan 6, 2018:
I don't go out of my way to listen to Christian music, but if it were to happen to come on the radio and has good metal feel without an overtly "Christian" (God or Jesus every other word) element, then yeah. Hell, I might sing along.
