Long ago, when Henry was newly married and still in college, he woke up one morning and decided to write comic books. Never one to let his lack of experience deter him from a dream, Henry got together with fellow comic book fan and dreamer David Willis and began writing and publishing the Southern Knights. A couple of years later, Comics Interview Publications took over the publishing duties, leaving Henry free to concentrate on his writing. The Southern Knights were soon joined by a sister publication, the X-Thieves. Both books ceased publication when the bottom fell out of the black and white comic book market.
In 2005, Henry woke up one morning and decided to become a professional storyteller. Once again refusing to let his lack of experience deter him, Henry has since performed before thousands of people all around his home state of North Carolina and has even served on the Board of Directors for the North Carolina Storytelling Guild.
In 2012, Henry woke up one morning and decided it was long past time for him to pursue his lifelong dream of writing science fiction novels. Since then, Henry has had a bunch of novels published and has several more in various stages of completion.
Away from writing and performing, Henry has worked in software development since 1990. He spends his day finding bugs and rooting out usability issues so those using the software don’t have to deal with them. It’s not as much fun as creating adventures on new worlds, but it pays the bills.
Henry married Audrey, the love of his life, in 1981. They’re still together. Henry readily admits Audrey is reflected in all of his heroines. Henry and Audrey have one son. They also share their house with a cat, who has been known to make a few paw-print edits to manuscripts. Henry has long since learned to save his work often if the cat is in the room.
