Hi everyone, as an A to Z co-Host, today it’s my turn to do a Getting to Know Me Post. Thanks everyone for posting a question on my blog earlier this week. Okay, here we go. Everything you wanted to know about me, for better or worse.
Q: Are you secretly working on your own Large Hadron Collider? Alex Cavanaugh
A: Yes, I am. But I can neither confirm nor deny as it's a secret. Shhhhhhh.
Q: Where DO you stand on the Pluto issue? Barbara in Caneyland
A: Glad you asked. According to Pluto’s note to NASA: Your Mom Thought I Was Big Enough, Sincerely, Pluto. So there it is directly from the source.
Q: If given the opportunity, would you travel to outer space? Betty
A: In a heartbeat. Civilian space travel is going to be very expensive, so it’ll have to be as a stowaway. I’ll lock myself in the bathroom.
Q: Do You play "Spore"? Dr. Theda
A: My kids do and I watch as we have one room dedicated to computers for the family. It’s hilarious as the evolving species had to adapt and keep from being eaten.
Q: Now I'm wondering about your webbed feet. Arlee Bird
A: Arlee, wonder no more. The answer is, oh look, a squirrel with a fuzzy tail. Um, who are we talking about again?
Q: Are you able to be human with so many wormholes around? Hilary Melton Butcher
A: I did go back in time and once smashed a mosquito. That one misstep changed everything in our modern day, including people. So technically, although we think we are people, we are really an entirely different race compared to what we used to be living in a perfect utopian society with no crime or disease. Sorry about that.
Q: Can you play the guitar like Alex? Nashvullecats2
A: I can play, just not like Alex.
Q: You're writing a book about cats - do you have a cat of your own? L. Diane Wolfe
A: We had cats growing up and I love them. But wifey is terribly allergic to them so we do not have a cat.
Q: Any merit badges? C. Lee McKenzie
A: Actually, those were demerit badges. But I’m damn proud of my Beverage Drinking Demerit badge, followed by my Belching Demerit Badge.
Q: When were first fascinated by science? Elizabeth Spann Craig
A: When I burned the first house at the age of five. Oops. I wonder of the statutes of limitations has run out.
Q: Which came first? Your interest in all things related to science in space or your desire to write speculative fiction? Susan Gourley / Kelly
A: The space and science came first and manifested in the form of art. The writing came quite a bit later. I always thought I would make a living off art. Roger Dean, artist of Yes albums, was my inspiration. Life is full of surprises.
Q: When are we going to Mars? David P. King
A: You and me? Dude, let’s go this weekend. We'll have an intergalactic kegger!

Q: How many other versions of you are there that exist in alternate dimensions? Dl Hammonds
A: Since there are infinite dimensions, there are infinite Stephen Todd Tremps out there. I hope they all don’t find a wormhole and come here. Think Multiplicity with Michael Keaton and Andie MacDowell.
|Marshawn Lynch: Definitely an Alien|
Q: Do you believe life (extraterrestrials) exist in other parts of the universe? Chrys Fey
A: I think they’ve arrived here and have taken over people such as politicians, famous athletes, and entertainers. Obama, Hilary, all the Bushes, Marshawn Lynch, the Kardashians (Spoiler Alert: the Kardashians are actually the Kargrandes from Alex Cavanaugh’s What Are The Kargrandes.
Q: If you had a one time use wormhole in a suitcase when you were younger, in what situation would you have used it as an escape route? :) Jemi Fraser
A: Getting that restraining order from Farah Fawcett. And Mary Tyler Moore. And Ginger and Maryann. Genie to.
Q: What do you see as the next likely evolution of our species? Samantha Dunway Bryant
A: We are all DEVO. D-E-V-O.
Q: Do people with webbed feet still use swim fins when scuba diving? LD Masterson
A: How the heck did that rumor get started? Oh yeah. Me.
Did You Know: In July 2015, NASA’s spacecraft New Horizons will complete a nearly-decade-long journey to fly by Pluto, and reveal humanity's first close-up look at the distant dwarf planet.
Fun Fact: Pluto never made a full orbit around the sun from the time it was discovered until its declassification.
A to Z Co-Host Bio: Stephen Tremp writes Speculative Fiction and embraces science and the supernatural to help explain the universe, our place in it, and to write one of a kind thrillers. His novels are enhanced by discoveries, breakthroughs and current events in many fields of science. Understanding Albert Einstein’s famous equation E=MC2 explains how the natural and the supernatural co-exist and compliment each other.
Stephen Tremp has a B.S. in information systems, an MBA in Global Management and a background in information systems, management, and finance. He draws from this background to write one of a kind thrillers. He lives in Orange county, CA with his wife and two daughters, a maltepoo dog, parrot, and hamster.
Target Readers: My books will have strong appeal to 18-44 year old men and women with some college education. In addition, since the novel is written in an amalgam of genres, it will please a wide variety of audiences including thriller, science fiction, suspense, young adult, and even a little romance.
Finally: Don't forget about the Weekend Follies at my blog. You need a good chuckle for all the hard work you put in during the week! Well, that’s it. Now you know me a little better. Thanks for stopping by. You can visit me at my Website Breakthrough Blogs.
