First of all, let me welcome you to my website, and thank you for checking me out.
Let me give you a little bit of information about myself.
My name is Ira Robinson and I am an author of science fiction, fantasy, and nonfiction books.
I’ve been writing books since I was a very young child, but, until recently, I had refrained from publishing anything publicly. While the reasons for this are varied, it is, in large part, due to a large number of my works being destroyed some years ago by vindictive people.
But, fresh starts, and all of that jazz…
I was born with a genetic defect in both of my eyes, which is called keratoconus. This defect, while allowing me to still retain some visual acuity, mainly in the form of colors, rendered me legally blind in 2006.
This has been both a bane and a blessing, because, while I would prefer to not be blind, it has given me time to be able to work on developing my stories.
Since the removal of myself from the general work force, I have devoted a great amount of time and effort to writing on a full-time basis.
Writing blind can be very difficult, as you may well imagine. Writing, can be very difficult on its own, even at the best of times, of course, but adding the fact that one cannot see the words on the screen or paper makes the process even more difficult.
Luckily, with the advances in computers being what they are, there are many tools now available to help facilitate easier writing.
At the present time, I am working on a book series, called The Takiq Cycle.
The first book in the series, called Silent Steps, is complete and published, and you can find it right here on this website.
So, once again, welcome to my little pit stop on the information superhighway. I hope you enjoy your stay, and be sure to tip your waitress; she has been working hard and never seems to get a break.
