Welcome to my site. Some of you who know me realize that up to now I have been writing non-fiction… but I’m on a new adventure. Science Fiction. In some ways it’s harder and in others it’s much more fun. As a former Navy pilot and an aerospace systems engineer I developed an appreciation for complex systems along with the love of flight and the reality of combat. Throw in years of reading the SF stories I love and I guess this was a natural progression.

Follow along with my Blog where I tell my story of writing as I experience the ups and down of the process.

Presently there are three books available now:

  • Future Discovered  Available now on Amazon
  • Immortal Guardian  Available now on Amazon
  • Search for Help  Available now on Amazon

Crucible: Records of the Argos

Available Now!   View Trailer

What reviewers are saying:

Crucible is a brilliant flight of fancy in a futuristic time that narrates mystery and intrigue in a distant system….. Readers who love high adventure will get a kick from reading this book. Crucible is a solid sci-fi adventure that will keep you absorbed.” 

– Vincent Dublado for Readers’ Favorite 5 Stars


…Crucible: Records of the Argos is a series of fast-paced leaps through space, dropping into multiple worlds, moons, asteroids, and outright adventures at a breakneck speed. The way this is written is a little different, being told from the first-person perspective of Nick Hall, and including some commentary directed to the reader, but I think it works wonderfully to more effectively draw you into the story…

Dark Enemy  is now available for Order !

First Place, Science Fiction, 2021 Texas Authors Institute Awards contest

What reviewers are saying:

The balance of intrigue and humor is perfect and the storyline has some really well-plotted machinations to thrust it forward. To me, Farlow’s strength lies in his talent for character development and description . . . This is classic science fiction with modern themes and great …” 

Asher Syed for Readers’ Favorite 5 Stars


… Dark Enemy grabbed my attention from the get-go and would not let me put it down until I finished it . . . The pace is just perfect, it is fast enough to keep the story going but not too fast that you lose where you are and what is happening. The author has done a wonderful job of creating a richly detailed and believable universe with characters that are real. Incredible and entertaining.
