Gene Lempp is a fiction author actively writing his dreams. His passion for words springs from years spent wandering the shaded vales of Middle Earth and Shannara , to the dark imaginings of Aesop, the Brothers Grimm, and Lovecraft, only to slip from the shadows to sore once more into the worm-ridden skies of Pern.
Gene has worked in healthcare, sales, security, manufacturing, retail, and as a Pokemon gym leader for disadvantaged children. For the past 16 years, Gene worked as a data miner, speed analyst, information editor, and client service account manager for a now vaporized Fortune 500 public relations and marketing firm. Currently, he has a day job.
Ancient history, archaeology, mythology, folklore, and fable — what makes “us” tick as a species, and how did we develop and continue to iterate the world we’ve collectively created — these are the heart of Gene’s passion and writing.
In his popular original series, Designing from Bones, Gene blends his research into the past with his love of writing to unearth an endless treasure trove of story ideas.
“Give the same seed to a thousand different writers and watch a thousand different stories bloom to life.”
As a writer, Gene blends elements of alternate history, alternate reality, the paranormal, fantasy, science fiction, and horror in his word cauldron to create new realities, mythologies, and folklore with a twist of a lime.
“Only the moment is eternal and in a moment, everything will change,” sums the heart of Gene’s philosophy.
You can find Gene at his Blog, Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads, WANATribe, Google+, Pinterest and StumbleUpon. and Linked-In. But mostly here and Facebook currently. *smile*
Love the shout out to the squirrels. I grew up on a grain farm in Manitoba. We quickly learned this Animal Farm-esque mantra: red squirrels good, gray squirrels bad (they’d chew through things to get to grain).
Around here they are all gray with the rare exception of a black squirrel (which are very aggressive). The grays have a love for the rubber coating on phone and internet cables, so much so that the various companies had to come up with cables that have squirrel repellent infused into them. Still love them, we have several acorn-bearing trees and rake them into piles. It’s fun watching a dozen squirrels feast from the same heap.

Oh, I loved the Pern series. If I remeber correctly it was Piers Anthony who wrote them.
Actually, the Pern series was written by Anne McCaffrey–Piers Anthony was best known for his Xanth series. I’ve read both, but the content is quite a bit different. I love history, mythology, and archeology. Thanks for the subscription!
By the way I share the same love for ancient history.
