Bio: Bob Cherny has been a fan of science and speculative fiction since he found it in the young people's section of the library. In grade school, he devoured works by Heinlein, Norton, Azimov, and Huxley among others. By the time he had finished high school, he had read every science fiction book in the town's library. College, and a disastrous Freshman year at Brandeis University, forced a reevaluation of reading materials. Switching majors to theater brought exposure to Shaw, Strindberg, Ibsen, Stoppard, Pinter, Shakespeare and a host of young would-be playwrights. As a technical theater major, Bob found that the quantity of material to which he was exposed often surpassed the quality. Too busy to do any writing of his own, Bob devoted his time to supporting the efforts of others. The Vietnam War brought a tour of duty in South Carolina and the opportunity to begin graduate work at the University of South Carolina. The war ended and Bob completed his course work before migrating to Florida and the only job he could find at Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus World. Master's degrees in theater were not worth much in the aftermath of the Vietnam War. Fortunately, through a series of unlikely coincidences, Bob landed a job as technical director of the then brand new Tupperware Convention Center. At the time, it was the only full time convention center in Central Florida. Bob would stay there for twenty years earning an MBA along the way although his work schedule left little time for either reading or writing except for articles in technical journals. Bob's sudden departure from Tupperware provided the time to return to reading and writing. The "Stagehands" series started in this period with gracious help from the writers in the CompuServe Writers Forum. Two of the planned three volumes have been completed. Bob returned to devouring speculative fiction reading authors like David Weber, John Ringo, Anne McCaffrey, CJ Cherryh, Kim Harrison, Tom Clancy, and Clive Cussler. He started writing the five volume science fiction "Warrior" series which has recently been completed.  A short stint at Disney Event Productions introduced Bob to the power of "Pixie Dust" although it would be six more years before he would figure out how to turn it into a novel, the novel you see before you today.  Bob left Disney for Paradise Show and Design where he returned to his roots in live event technical support. He took a short detour to open the Silver Spurs Arena in Kissimmee, Florida before returning to Paradise where he currently works. "Don't give up your day job."  Driven by boredom as much as anything else, Bob cranked out a single volume alternate history placed in what is now known as New England as it might have been if the Vikings and Irish explorers who found Greenland and Iceland had ventured far enough south to discover Cape Cod and established viable colonies. "Flying with Fairies" is Bob's most recent work. It is intended to be light reading. Don't try to read too much between the lines. There's nothing there. Relax and enjoy.
