About Kate Rauner

I am a retired Cold War Warrior. I worked for over twenty years at the Rocky Flats Plant outside Denver, Colorado, which was part of the nation's nuclear weapons complex. During the Cold War, I was a Chemical Engineer in the plutonium recycling and purification facility. I've held plutonium in my hands; not many people can say that.

After the Cold War fizzled out, I switched to environmental engineering and project planning during the lengthy clean up of the plant. Today that plant is a wildlife refuge.

Next I moved to southwest New Mexico and worked at the copper mines around Silver City, including the Santa Rita mine. Santa Rita has been a copper source since before Europeans entered the New World.

Today I live in southwest New Mexico, at the edge of the Gila National Forest, with my husband, dog, three cats, and four llamas. I am a volunteer firefighter and have fought wildland and home fires. I've loved science all my life and plan to keep learning. I enjoy weaving bits of futurist technologies into my stories and lately I've been writing short, rhyming poetry inspired by science. I am well on my way to achieving my life goal: to become an eccentric old woman..
