Niko Perren lives in Calgary, Canada with his wife Lara, and two cats. He holds dual degrees in Computer Science and Pure Mathematics, and works as a senior software researcher. He balances his nerdy tendencies by being a long-time participant at Burning Man, where he builds art, volunteers, and helps run a theme camp.
Niko's love of the outdoors started with alpine climbing, and pro-gressed into expedition caving, snowboarding, and canyoneering. His travels have taken him to some of the world's most remote and beautiful places.

I found The Glass Sky to be an enjoyable, action-packed story with lots of drama, suspense and humour. It's 2050 and a small group of very likable protagonists are working on one last chance to save the earth from the catastrophic results of global warming. They've developed a science-based plan to build a controllable shield in space that can direct the sun's rays. Control of the shield is the ultimate political prize, and even while on the brink of disaster nations are unwilling to cooperate and self-interest rules the day. The international intrigue, fast-paced action, and moral dilemmas faced by the central characters kept me captivated till the end. This book is a great read that challenged some of my thinking about the future of our world. It would make a terrific movie!
