WILLIAM HOWARD'S NOVEL UNIVERSE
Welcome to My Author Portfolio
CURRENT WRITINGS AND PUBLISHED WORKS.
Stories from my universe
The earliest stories that I created were in my earlier teens when I envisioned long forgotten civilizations on Mars and Saturn. I returned to the far reaches on the Universe with the publication of my first novel, The Eye of Hermes: A Minerva Novel. It is a world where Insect races have been locked in a 500 year war for dominance. There are two great threats that these races are facing that might destroy the world as they know it. My current project is the novel, Marigold. It is about an InOrganic life-form who awakes one morning to find her creator has disappeared, and that she has been scheduled to be disassembled and that she has been wrongly accused of the murder of a government official.
Sept 2012 to April 2013
My career as a published writer began far afield from the world of science fiction. In 2012, I was fortunate enough to work as an intern at the Historic Society of Pennsylvania. Working for the PhilaPlace project, I researched and published articles about the everyday history of Philadelphia landmarks. Here are a few samples.
