In addition to exhibiting and selling paintings and drawings, he has completed fifteen novels. He placed a novella, The First Twenty Steps, on Smashwords, Barnes and Noble's Nook Press site, and amazon.com's Kindle Direct Publishing in order to offer some sample work and to experiment with eâ€“publishing processes. His science fiction novel The Martian Marauders was published by Double Dragon Publishing in January 2012, with Book Two, Jack Commer, Supreme Commander, following in August 2012, and Book Three, Nonprofit Chronowar, in May 2013. Book Four, Collapse and Delusion, is also scheduled to be published by Double Dragon.
Smith's writing in both literary and science fiction genres uses humor to investigate psychological and spiritual themes. He strives for high energy, intense character interaction, and strong emotion. His web site, www.sortmind.com, is named for his 2009 novel Sortmind, which chronicles the Telepathic Database, urban architectural wars, and two sets of aliens with opposing ideas about dealing with the human race. In his blog, blog.sortmind.com, Smith explores art and writing processes. Both his web sites contain further examples of his writing and visual art.
Smith is currently the Technology Librarian for McKinney Public Library in McKinney, Texas.
