About the Author

AUTHOR: I began writing in 1967, right after I started reading, and--if you overlook thousands of rejections and thirty-three years of practice--was an immediate success. Since my first sale in 2000 I've sold three novels, a half-dozen novellas, and thirty-one short stories. I've also co-written or co-edited nineteen role-players' resource and rule books. My writing is fueled by two questions: "What happened?" and "What if?" The first motivates my exploration of lesser-known history, and the second drives my speculations about how our world would be changed if we had chosen differently. From those two streams my stories flow.

EDITOR: Some say I was born with a red pen in my hand, so it's no surprise that my penchant for words and stories ultimately led to a career in writing and editing. My literary tastes vary, but I largely gravitate toward genre fiction. I'll read anything sci-fi, fantasy, horror, western, and so forth. Some of my favorite contemporary authors are Dan Simmons, Chuck Wendig, David Brin, George R. R. Martin, and John Scalzi. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

For decades Kevin Killiany was an actor, drill rig operator, warehouse grunt, photographer, and

paperboy, but in the 1980s found himself drawn into teaching and working with young people. He taught high school, elementary school, and community college before moving into community mental health where he worked crisis intervention, community support, and family preservation services.

Kevin sold his first short story in 2000 and since then has written for Star Trek, Doctor Who, and several role-playing games. In 2011 he became a full time writer and editor, but gradually came to realize that sitting alone in a room arguing with his computer was neither as exciting nor as glamorous as he'd imagined. In 2015 he returned to the college classroom part time as an adjunct English instructor and has found his dream career is a healthy balance of both writing and teaching people who want to write.

Kevin lives with his wife Valerie in Wilmington, on the coast of North Carolina. They have four

children, one recently acquired, and a grandsquiggle named Zo&euml;.
