About

2017-01-05 17.09.09I am a New Pulp writer of SF and Fantasy with Airship 27. My works include; “Claws of the Golden Dragon”, “Wings of the Golden Dragon” and a short story “Sinbad and the Island of the Puppet Master” in Airship 27’s Sinbad Anthology.

Thanks to my father, I was infected with a love of reading from an early age. It was he who introduced me to S.J. Perelman and P.G. Wodehouse, as well as Heinlein and Asimov. I take full blame for my adoration of Fantasy, however.

Reading, for some, inevitably leads to writing. I started early, with stories that will never see the light of day and a few fanfictions that I leave to the interested observers to seek out. Being of Chinese descent and something of a Wuxia fan, much of my work is influenced by Shaw Brothers’ movies and the like.

Pulp titles like “The Shadow” and “Doc Savage” were among my early influences. I also adore “The Green Hornet” TV series, in part because of Bruce Lee and in part because it was ahead of its time when it came to how it treated minorities.

I’ve two sons, both teenagers, a husband and a dog. There’s also a cat who thinks I belong to her, but I’m still arguing that point. My age is old enough and continues to increase daily.

When I’m not chasing the teenagers, husband or dog about on their appointed rounds, I’m generally writing. I can be reached for comment at BarbaraDoran@sumergoscriptum.com.
