Meet the People that Make FWS Happen!
WILLIAM: Founder & Editor-in-Chief
William founded FWS way back in 2010 as a place for writers like himself that working within the interesting sub-genre of science fiction known as "Military Science Fiction". Not being a veteran, but a fan of the world of military service, William had trouble attempting to located needed information about warfare and soldiering. Thus, FWS was born. He is from a strange and distant land known as "Oklahoma" and he grew up in one of the golden era of western civilization known as "the 1980s". He was introduced to Military SF as a wee one via the anime series Starblazers, Star Wars, and Star Trek II: The Wraith of Khan. He was hooked and by the time he watch ROBOTECH in 1985, the interest became a life-long passion. William would engage in tabletop wargames like Twlight 2000, Star Trek Tactical Starship Combat Simulator, Battletech along with playing on his ATARI 2600 & 7800, and read all manner of American and Japanese comics like Dynamo Joe, Lone Wolf and Cub, Alien Legion, ALIENS, Predator, Terminator 2029, and Strikeforce Morituri. Always a writer wanting to explore his own fictional universe, William would write from an early age and continues to do so. He grew up shooting, playing paintball, devoted to Porsche, loving Star Trek, rescuing cats with his mother, and taking Martial Arts. In high school, William would take the Martial Art that would define and control him: Jeet Kune Do. By the 1990's, he moved from the plains of hell to Dallas, Texas, where he would go to university, earning a degree in History, and meet his wife of 20 years. Today, he still calls Dallas home with his two daughters, his wife, his cat, his three generations of Xboxs, collection of technical manuals and Casio watches.
