Pings, Ports, Preface, Preview . . .
Hi. I’m Ned, and I’m interested in… everything from context-aware technology to post-modern theology to genetic engineering to bicycle hacking to medieval manuscripts. I lead smart teams to product success and build innovative new technologies. I wrote a book about technology, and two novels — Coeur d’Alene Waters – and Sinful Folk, a best-selling novel set in the Middle Ages. I also publish future-looking novels, and my new project is an SF novel about the War on Terror.

- BookList Review -- Starred Review - "Brilliantly conceived and beautifully executed, Hayes’ novel is woven through with a deep knowledge of medieval history, all conveyed in mesmerizing prose."
- HNR Review: “Riveting, poetic story… a rich medieval tapestry” --
- Telling a Story -- What does it mean to tell a story? When I think of “telling a story,” I am thinking specifically of the act of verbal storytelling – perhaps around a fire. If you are sitting with a bunch of 11 year old girls by a bonfire, and you begin by saying “I’m going to tell you a scary story,” you darn well better fulfill that expectation.
- The Writing Process -- I was invited by Steven Hendricks to participate in a “writing process blog tour.” Each person on the tour tags three others to answer questions about creative work and their writing process.
- Writing “realistic” magic -- a post on Tim Powers & John Bellairs --
