Hello. My name is Rob Friesel, Jr. But for the most part, the web has me down as @founddrama.
UI Engineer by day…
Science Fiction writer by night…
When time, energy, and children permit, I labor away on my childhood dream of becoming a published novelist. Science fiction is where I’ve found my strongest voice, and so that’s where I dabble the most. I have a few irons in the fire there, with a couple drafts of a couple of novels ready to be polished up at any time. (I’m thinking of three in particular that I’m particularly keen to tidy up.) I tend to be long-winded (hence the novels) but despite that fact, my first publishing success was a short story: “Where the Air is Sweet and the Clouds are a Different Shape”, which appeared in Angela Palm’s Please Do Not Remove
In the meantime, if you happen to be attending or visiting my alma mater, you may find my senior St. Mary’s project bound in the “St. Mary’s Collection”.
After a life-long desire to give beer-brewing a whirl, I did just that in August 2014. That first beer took second place in a very small competition. Since then I’ve brewed at a cadence of… oh about once a month. I’ve also ventured into making mead, and won “Mead Maker of the Year” in the 2017 Greg Noonan Memorial Homebrew Competition.
For now it’s just a hobby, though (like so many) I often daydream about making it a jobby.
If you don’t get enough of me here, or believe it’s easier to stay in touch through one of those so-called social networks:
