Special Guest – Kerry Nietz


by Keven Newsome

As we continue our new guest blogger series, I’m pleased to present Marcher Lord Press author Kerry Nietz.  Kerry is a friend of NAF, and can be seen lurking in the comment sections.

Diane Graham has spent a good deal of time with Kerry already, reviewing his debut novel A Star Curiously Singing and interviewing Kerry.  Please stop by and read these posts if you have not already.

Kerry Nietz is a refugee of the software industry. He spent more than a decade of his life flipping bits—first as one of the principal developers of the database product FoxPro for the now mythical Fox Software, and then as one of Bill Gates’s minions at Microsoft. He is a husband and a father, a technophile and a movie buff. He has three published books: a memoir entitled FoxTales: Behind the Scenes at Fox Software and two novels from the DarkTrench Saga: A Star Curiously Singing and The Superlative Stream.

He joins us today to share with us his journey from obscurity to published author.  So without further ado, here is Kerry Nietz in his own words.

  1. This is a wonderful post, Kerry. Thank you for being our guest once again. 😀

  2. Twas a pleasure! Plus I think I’ll be able to use the salient points of this blog for a presentation I’m giving later this month. So, you know, two birds, one stone!

  3. Loved reading the full journey, Kerry. As you know I “came to know you late” through A Star Curiously Singing because I loved the title, and had a bit of contact with Jeff at Marcher Lord Press. Then there was the mystery of the late shipment of books, through which I was able to acquire both Star and The Superlative Stream. Thanks for sharing!
