My name is Steve Williamson and this is my personal blog. Most of this content is focused on three areas of interest: motorcycle adventure touring, my work as author of The Taesian Chronicles (a trilogy of fantasy novels), and my interest in aviation in general and flight simulation in particular.

My motorcycle adventures have taken me through most of the western half of the United States and Canada, primarily aboard a 2007 Suzuki V-Strom 650 I call “The Grey Mule,” as well as a 4-year stint on a 2012 Suzuki GSX-R750.

As mentioned, I am the author of three fantasy novels: Ohlen’s Arrow, Ohlen’s Bane, and Paragon’s Call. Together, they comprise The Taesian Chronicles trilogy. They are available in print and as eBooks for Kindle at Amazon.com. I am self-published. Most of my posts on this topic have focused on the processes and tools I use as an author.

Finally, I write about my interests in aviation and flight simulation. I have built a Cessna 172 flight simulator based on X-Plane, installed in a standard closet of a spare room at my home. Several articles focus on its construction and continued upgrade and maintenance efforts.

My day job is Senior Project Manager for eRep.com, the leading provider of the Core Values Index psychometric assessment. Part of my job is to write articles for the company blog.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog!
