Gary Starta has extensive experience with writing. He has completed English and Journalism at University and has worked as a journalist. He then took a walk on the wild side and became a fiction writer.
His works include his first novel which was a science fiction work entitled What are you Made of? Next came paranormal suspense novels Blood Web and Extreme Liquidation which were inspired by the X Files TV series.
Then comes a crime novella Murder by Association, followed by Alzabreah's Garden – a fantasy romance.
Lastly we get to Gary's sci-fi mystery: Gods of the Machines.
Gary warped into the Fantasy Sci-Fi Network for an author interview this weekend.
Here are my fave bits:
* Gary talks about combining and experimenting with genres, so he is not pigeon-holed.
* He writes about sentient androids and counts Commander Data as an inspiration
* I'm really impressed with Gary's writing routine
* Yep, his superpower is a good one

Here is Gary Starta's sci-fi novel: Gods of the Machines
Redemption is a theme which runs through Gods of the Machines, a new sci fi/mystery which takes place on the recently colonized planet, Ceres. Det. Sam Benson needs to redeem himself in the eyes of his lover and colleague, Sandra. When Sandra finds Benson is eager to pin a spree of murders on an android - without obtaining concrete evidence - she postpones their wedding. Benson then seeks solace in his new CSI partner. And while Benson is distracted by his personal business, the murders continue. No trace evidence is left behind and the murders are brutal, still leaving Benson to believe - despite protests from Sandra - that only a super strengthened being would be capable of the crimes. Yet something connected to the origin of the planet may be the answer when unexplained disturbances affect the computer controlled weather net system. Now Benson must consider other suspects - ones that may not currently reside on Ceres.
