Interests: Figures, armor, sci-fi and fantasy...and some aircraft.
About ironelf They tell me I was born in Canada. I do like hockey, and I am wary of polar bears so they're probably right. I now live in New York City.
I'm a fantasy author (the Iron Elves series and the forthcoming Of Bone And Thunder - October 2014) and a military historian (14 years as an acquisitions editor for Random House and Stackpole Books). I authored Bloody Jungle: The War in Vietnam and Steel Thunder On The Eastern Front which will come out November 2014).
I've been a modeler since I was a kid and while there have been years since when my building has been dormant, my interest in the hobby has only grown. I am getting back into it again, focusing on 35th scale figures and armor. I've also been drawn into modern armor and aircraft which is a big change from my mostly WW2 interest up to now.
