About Doug Farren

I can be reached at

Born in Franklin, PA but raised in Minnesota. I like to call Forest Lake my home town even though I haven't lived there since I was 17. I joined the Navy in 1976 and spent 11 fun years as a nuclear operator in the surface fleet. I am now employed at the Perry Nuclear Power Plant in Ohio where I work as an instrumentation and controls technician.

I've always enjoyed reading science fiction (I can thank my dad for that) and I've always had an avid interest in high technology and computers. I have done computer programming as a consultant specializing in complex database conversion.

I try to write stories that can actually happen some day with science based mostly in fact. Lasers can't be seen in space, explosions can't be heard, and ships can't do the seemingly impossible without at least some type of explanation.

I am married to a wonderful wife and I have 2 daughters from a previous marriage. I now have two granddaughters as well but that does not mean I'm old!
