I was born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada in August of 1969. My parents are Dave and Margaret Posey and I have two older brothers named Mark and Todd. I was hooked on science fiction at an early age watching Star Trek reruns and Space 1999 on television in the early 1970s. In 1977 I was playing over at a friend of mine's house (Todd Cherniawsky) and I vividly remember him showing me an advertisement for Star Wars in the local paper's TV Guide, I remember being so excited and couldn't wait to go and see it.
As a side note, it turns out that Todd liked science fiction even more than I did. When he grew up he moved to Los Angeles and has done quite well for himself working behind the scenes in Hollywood. Some of his credits include being the supervising art director on Avatar and Star Wars The Last Jedi. The last time I spoke with Todd he said he had just finished assembling the Millenium Falcon on set and got to sit in the cockpit when he was finished. How many people can say they've done that? Pretty cool Todd!
Some of my other science fiction favorites include Battlestar Galactica (the original series), Alien, Aliens, Stargate, Stargate Atlantis, all of the original cast Star Trek movies (except 1 & 5), the Star Trek The Next Generation television series, the Star Trek Next Generation movies and the current Marvel movies.
I got married at the age of 21 and then went back to school. I graduated from the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) in 1992 earning my diploma in Computer Engineering Technology and have been an I.T. person for the last 27 years, specializing in network design, installation and support.
Back in 1996 I took an interest in 3D computer animation and began teaching myself 3D Studio Max. I really enjoyed the model building aspect of it and had a lot of fun building all kinds of 3D spaceship models. It was something I did for fun. I never thought that I would actually use those skills, but now I make my own book covers and the images for this website.
I have two beautiful daughters from that first marriage named Alyssa and Sarah and I love them dearly. It has been a lot of fun watching them grow up over the years and I am a very proud father.
In January of 2017 I married the love of my life Nicole Hayman. Nicole is an American, born in Los Angeles, but was living in St. Charles, Missouri when we met online. We spent 7 years in a long distance relationship before marrying and Nicole has now moved up to Edmonton to live with me. Nicole encouraged me to embrace my passion for science fiction and write my first book.
As it turns out I really enjoy writing, but it is a lot of work and like all things it is something that you get better at over time. To that end I am reading several books written by successful authors to improve my writing and story telling. I am hoping that one day in the near future I will be able to retire from the world of I.T. and have a successful career as an author.
Some of my other interests include classic 60s and 70s muscle cars (I am a muscle car nut). My favorite car is a Daytona yellow 1969 Camaro Z28 with black stripes. In my younger days I trained in a couple different martial arts. I love going to the gym and lifting weights. I go at least five times a week. I keep myself in really good shape and I get compliments all the time. I also enjoy camping and fishing.
