Kal Spriggs started reading science fiction and fantasy in elementary school. Eventually he was the only eight year old with permission from the local public library to check out books from the adult section because he’d read everything else. He’s written ever since he started running out of ‘good’ stuff to read when he was twelve, although he likes to think his writing has improved, if only slightly.
His range of interests has since expanded to include computer and console games, tabletop RPGs, and strategy games.
An Army brat born overseas, Kal was born with a wanderlust to see what lies over the next horizon. Kal visited twenty two countries on five continents before he turned twenty five, he currently has the count up to thirty two, and hopes to add many more to the list, as well as revisit some of his favorite places. Spriggs loves to ski, hike, fish, hunt, and camp, especially in the Rocky Mountains where he spent much of his childhood.
Kal Spriggs is a graduate of the United States Merchant Marine Academy with an engineering degree and has since acquired a Masters of Science in Environmental Engineering from the Missouri University of Science and Technology. Kal is a US Army combat veteran who has deployed to both Afghanistan and Iraq, where he served in a number of roles from IED Clearance, to Security Force Adviser, and even occasionally managed to put his engineering skills to good use.
