Profile Information

I was born and raised in the foothills of Appalachia.  I grew up in a small coal and timber town called Gilbert in southern West Virginia, where my dad was a mine engineer.  I have always loved science and technology, and it follows logically then that I should love science fiction also.  I taught myself how to create software for computers using a variety of languages that were available at the time.  Ultimately, I would leave Gilbert for Austin, Texas and take up a career as a video game developer for one of the top game companies in the world.

In 2003, I started my own software company, Nagle Research, Inc., developing software for high-speed 3D inspection systems.

In addition to writing, I am also an airplane and helicopter pilot, avid motorcyclist, amateur filmmaker, goofy drummer, and photographer.

In late 2008, I was trying to plan a sci-fi story I was thinking about and wondered what the best way to manage the disparate story arcs, places, objects, etc. and keep from developing plot holes and inconsistencies.  I had a flash of inspiration and saw instantly how to solve the problem.  Since that time, I've been utilizing my software development skills to build the software I envisioned.  It's still not finished, far from it in fact, but I'm pleased with how it's shaping up, and I think lots of authors will find benefit in using it.  Let me know if you'd like to know more about it...I'm not trying to sell it at this point, but feedback on the concepts would be nice, and would guarantee you a free copy when it's ready.
