Welp, let's give this a try! Hi. You can call me Will, a Black/Native/white small-town fella of the Nanticoke tribe in southern Delaware, and for the past eight years, I've been an indie author of punk genre fiction. What's that you ask? Well, it's cyberpunk, steampunk, atompunk (my fave), dieselpunk, decopunk, dreampunk and so many more. Basically, they are very niche subgenres of fiction, combining fanciful tech/fantasy in an alternate history world. I first started out with short stories, which I've circled back to, years ago published in the now-defunct Fiction Magazines, which also had a few titles back in its day (like PRIMER).

But eventually, I wanted to write my own novel, and did so, with An Unsubstantiated Chamber released in 2015, the first book in The Rail Legacy series. You know the story: woman trained by the government in Wild West city meets burned-out steampunk cyborg and the two form a partnership to take on the System? I know, I know, it's a trope, but I worked it out nicely, I think. That led to many short stories in that world (the Legacy Universe, or LU) taking place before and lone after that timeline of the alternate 1880s.

Heck, now I've gone beyond the LU to make new universes on Wattpad and Kindle Vella, and doubt I'll be stopping anytime soon. I still write LU tales, because they're a fave. So that's my writing stuff in a pinch. If you like, go read my stuff. I'll be putting up some things here too on the cheap for you to read. Keep dropping by. I'll keep putting down words.

Enjoy this post?
