Michael Dirubio is a new author on the scene writing hard science fiction. I swear never to write a book about an elf, a quest, or a sword. Not that there is anything wrong with fantasy, I love it! I just miss Heinlein, Poul Anderson and Asimov. I served twenty years in the US Military on submarines so my lack of social skills is perfectly suited to being a writer. I don't currently plan to write a huge series. I don't want to tie myself down to the same characters. I have some published now and ideas for about ten more in my head. I write fairly quickly so ideally I plan to put out a book a year.
Additionally, I think it is incumbent upon me to let you know I write simply for myself. I don't care for money or fame. If you have a criticism or I have made a mistake, please feel free to share it but I reserve the right to disregard all. I encourage anyone who thinks they can do better to please try. That's how I started: a simple premise: what if I were the program manger for a Mars Mission. I used my knowledge of the defense industry to look at that idea. My other books are similar, why did they do that? As for the rest, age, where I live and family? Unimportant but late fifties. I live in the bay area and have a long suffering wife.
