My blog - I thought I would never say that. But this is the world we live in today. People twitter their every action, Facebook is unbelievably popular, and blogging is now common-place. My name is Doug Farren and I am an author. That's not my primary job, but it's the one I enjoy the most. I have published 4 books with more on the way. They are:
Galactic Alliance Series: Translight!, Chroniech!, and Honor Thy Enemy. This is hard-core, high-tech, star wars style, knock-down drag-out space warfare at its best.
Dragonverse: My first foray into fantasy. This book has been reviewed with a fairly good rating. You can read the review be clicking on this link: Book review

I work at the Perry Nuclear Power Plant in Northeast Ohio. I am an instrumentation and controls (I&C) technician and have been working at the plant since 1989. Prior to that, I was an ET nuke in the US Navy. We are the ones that run the reactor that powers the propulsion system of the nuclear powered ships. I am an avid fan of science fiction and love to read about advances in technology
At the moment, I'm taking a bit of a hiatus from writing while I do some reading on how to improve my writing. I accept criticism as an opportunity for improvement. The review of Dragonverse indicated I need to make some improvements. While many have read my books and given me good comments, it's the comments of those that I failed to completely satisfy that interest me the most. I want to become a better writer and the only way for that to happen is to learn from my mistakes.
