5-STAR AMAZON REVIEW, CLOSURE

Charles Brass is the pen name of a middle-ager who believes in the maxim "Write what you want to read!" He enjoys science-fiction above all other genres, and action-adventure tales most within the genre- though space opera and epic tales come a close second. He's not into convoluted explanations of technology or how things work- hey, it's science-fiction! Have fun with it!
Charles served six years in the US Navy right out of high school, where he earned his education and training as a Radiologic Technologist (x-ray tech), and served in Bahrain during the first Gulf War (remember that one?). After leaving the service, he worked as a word processor for a few years (where he learned the joy that is WordPerfect!) before returning full-time to Radiology.
In the decades since, he has obtained his credentials in CT and MRI, and currently works in a small city west of Minneapolis, as the night-shift CT/MRI technologist for a local stand-alone emergency center. With a new Bachelor's degree in animation under his belt, his business idea will soon claim a majority of his waking hours. But rest assured, he will find the time to keep writing now that the Muse has struck- even if it means his patients in the ED have to wait a moment or two... ha!
Back in the early days (1988-ish) when I knew I one day wanted to be a published author, I decided on the pen name 'Charles Brass'. Brass is part of my actual last name, and in the bookstores at the time, Brass was between Bradley and Brin in the Science Fiction/Fantasy section (two well-known authors).
Fast-forward a decade or so when the internet was really becoming a thing. I tried to secure the name CharlesBrass, but it was taken. Then I tried CBrass. But it too was taken. So... I tried Seabrass (as in C. Brass). And lo! It was mine!
So, since then, the majority of my online presence has been seabrass.something. Now I also use charlesbrassMN (my email address here is charlesbrassMN@gmailcom). And that is how I came to use 'Seabrass' in my little online world.
