Kal Spriggs is a writer of science fiction and fantasy stories with over 30 books in print. An avid reader, he started reading J.R.R. Tolkien, Andre Norton, David Eddings, and Robert Heinlein in the 2nd grade and a love of reading and good stories has been constant with him ever since.
Kal is a graduate of the United States Merchant Marine Academy. He followed in his parents’ footsteps and joined the US Army after graduation and served as an active-duty engineer officer, a reservist, and as an active reservist. He is a combat veteran with deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. Kal has a master’s degree in environmental engineering and has worked in civil construction and environmental remediation.
His enjoyment for seeing new places has been facilitated by his career choices, and he’s been to over thirty countries. Kal likes hiking, fishing, and skiing, and his favorite places are typically in the mountains of Colorado. His other hobbies include wargaming, tabletop RPGs (both as a DM and player), metalworking, and just about anything else that takes his interest.
A father and husband, Kal and his family live wherever the Army tells him to (he doesn’t often get much choice in the matter) but he thinks of Colorado as home.
