You see, since A.S. was young, the one thing he was able to better than most was read. He completed the 12th grade reading assignments by age 8 and went on to complete the college level by age 11. His voracious love of reading led to where he finds himself toady: as a struggling writer.
Don't misunderstand, he is not struggling in the typical sense. He has a great job as an engineer; is married to a wonderful women who is, has been, and will forever be his favorite human; and happily spoils two adorable dogs who can get away with anything they want. Literally...anything. No, the struggle comes in the form of attempting to create a life as a writer. He constantly writes short stories, essays, reviews, multiple novellas, and even some novels (one of which is actually complete!) just for the sake of it. He knows that writing will never be his full time job, or even a part time one.
His struggle is in continuing to climb forward as a writer. There are times he finds himself tired, lazy, hungry, or too enthralled in a comic or book to write. It is here that he struggles and it is through this work he hopes to break free of that struggle. This website is a reminder to stretch his writer's legs (is that thing?) and work towards becoming the writer he always knew he could be: a consistent one.
Additionally, he enjoys woodworking, model building, gaming, cooking, eating, and spending time with his family.
A lot can be said about A.S. MacKenzie.
Some good, and some better. However, to truly understand the man you will need to go back to the beginning: Florida.
On a spring day in 1974, A.S. entered the world through a hospital in Sarasota. Over the course of the next dozen or so years, he would find himself growing, learning, and engaging in all manner of activities. Things like, walking, schooling, eating, driving, and reading. While the third of these is a decided favorite of his, it is really the last one that holds a special place in his heart.
