J. D. Beckwith

J. D. Beckwith


J.D. Beckwith is a mechanical engineer with delusions of writing grandeur. He guides the manufacture of machines and equipment by day, but turns his hand to the manufacture of stories by night. His kaizen is strong and his kaku is improving as he works to expand his bibliography in multiple genres with a special love for Science Fiction. He amuses himself with reading, writing book review blogs, RPG gaming, including being a D&D Dungeon Master, arguing on the internet, occasionally growing tomatoes, and herding cats somewhere in the woods of Northwest Georgia.

eConscience Beta (Sci-Fi/Technothriller/Comedy), his first novel, was indie published in November 2017.
