Don Carey writes both Contemporary Realism and Science Fiction Adventure. He has long been fascinated by human nature, and loves trying to understand the thoughts and motivations of those around him. That interest has served him well as he writes stories about his “imaginary friends.” Don currently lives in Olathe with his family. His day job involves writing computer programs, which is almost the same as writing fiction, but with a lot more semicolons.
