About

Hallo! Wie geht es? Es geht mir gut! Bacil Donovan Warren here. I'm a writer (in various genres!), a truly self-taught programmer (as you can tell if you have downloaded any of my apps), and a general nerd.

I like creating things. I like telling stories. In telling stories, I endeavor to inspire readers to think more deeply, appreciate more readily, understand more easily, and connect more viscerally. But mostly … the stories I tell, I want them to feel real, to give a reader a sense of immersion while reading them that will stick with them when they are done.

Some of the things I have written are in bookstores. I wrote and published a small chap book of some poetry a few years ago (Hooray for Pain!), and I wrote and published With It or in It: Desert Shield and Desert Storm from the Loader's Hatch in 2016, on the 25th anniversary of the start of Operation Desert Sabre. It covers my experience as a tank crewman—and really, the experiences of many US Army tankers and cav scouts—with the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment, starting from 02 August 1990 and ending on 18 March 1991, when we landed back in El Paso after Operation Desert Sabre had ended. I also wrote and published a Sci-Fi novel, Universus Respondet: Fermi's Paradox Answered—a Novel, in November 2018.

I am currently writing a Historical Military fiction novel based in Rome during the Gallic and Caesar's Civil Wars, and am working on a fantasy novel series. I also continue to write poetry.

Beyond writing, though, I also like teaching, and helping other people learn things. One of the things I'm doing for myself, for example, is I'm going through the process of recording the audiobook versions of a couple of my written works, at home. This is a lot less expensive than recording in a studio, but is also challenging in other ways. As part of that process, I am documenting the holes I fall in, and when I get through the process I will be also post videos & how-tos that will hopefully permit other authors to do the same, but with a gentler learning curve and a lot less hassle.

While I intend to focus effort on these tools—especially de-mystifying Scrivener and Aeon Timeline, two of my favorite writing tools—I will be doing more with work in progress posts right now, with the technical posts coming soon.

All of your support is amazing, and helps keep the lights on, the website up and running, and maybe occasionally eat. Thank you for considering being a patron!
