Random Writing Quote:

A man who is not born with the novel-writing gift has a troublesome time of it when he tries to build a novel. I know this from experience. He has no clear idea of his story; in fact he has no story. He merely has some people in his mind, and an incident or two, also a locality, and he trusts he can plunge those people into those incidents with interesting results. So he goes to work. To write a novel? No--that is a thought which comes later; in the beginning he is only proposing to tell a little tale, a very little tale, a six-page tale. But as it is a tale which he is not acquainted with, and can only find out what it is by listening as it goes along telling itself, it is more than apt to go on and on and on till it spreads itself into a book. I know about this, because it has happened to me so many times.

--Mark Twain

Kathy Porter grew up in Endicott, New York, the birthplace of IBM and only a short distance from where one of her favorite TV series creators, Rod Serling, was raised.  Kathy’s lifelong interest in science fiction ignited when her father, a science teacher, showed her craters on the moon and taught her about the constellations.  She grew up watching science fiction movies and TV shows.  Ray Bradbury’s Martian Chronicles was her first delve into a science fiction novel, and she has been hooked ever since.

“I think I was born telling stories,” Kathy explained during a recent interview.  “As second to the oldest of seven children, the girls all slept in one bedroom.  I loved making up bedtime stories with an eerie edge to frighten my sisters:  tales about fairies, leprechauns, and aliens.”

In September of 1961, reports of Barney and Betty Hill’s alien abduction claims took the media by storm.  Kathy has been fascinated by their story of science fiction turned reality and “are we alone?”

“The concept of the Gray Guardians Series initially came to me in a dream that lingered in my mind for hours.  Finally I told my husband about it over coffee and explained to him that if it were a book, I would love to read it.  He said, ‘If you want to read it, you have to write it.’  With his encouragement and support, Earth’s Ultimate Conflict came to fruition. That’s how the Gray Guardians Series began.”

Science fiction fans of all ages are applauding the appearance of this bold new voice for the genre.
