Award-winning author Hank Quense lives in Bergenfield, NJ with his wife Pat.  They have two daughters and five grandchildren.  He writes humorous fantasy and scifi stories.  On occasion, he also writes an article on fiction writing or book marketing but says that writing nonfiction is like work while writing fiction is fun.  He refuses to write serious genre fiction saying there is enough of that on the front page of anyDwarf2daily newspaper and on the evening TV news.

Zaftan Entrepreneurs is his latest work.  In it, an alien mining ship discovers a planet that holds promise to be a mining bonanza.  Unfortunately, it is inhabited by humans, dwarfs, elves and other races and they object to the mining expeditions.

Hank’s previous works include Tales From Gundarland, a collection of fantasy stories.  Readers Favorite award the book a medal and EPIC designated a finalist in its 2011 competition.  His Fool’s Gold is a retelling of the ancient Rhinegold myth and Tunnel Vision is a collection of twenty previously published short stories.  Build a Better Story is a book of advice for fiction writers.

Altogether, Hank has over forty published short stories and a number of non-fiction articles.

He is presently working on novel (or a novella, he doesn’t which yet) that combines plots and characters from Shakespeare’s Hamlet and Othello with the character Falstaff thrown in for good measure.  He is also working on a follow-up novel to Zaftan Entrepreneurs called Zaftan Miscreants.
