William Darren Reder was born in the sleepy town of Atchison, Kansas, in 1965. It is a distinction he feels fortunate to share with Atchison’s hometown heroine, Amelia Earhart.
Mr. Reder was raised as part of a farm family. As such, he knows the meaning of hard work – a necessary component for the aspiring writer. He also prefers the solitude of the country life.
By day, Mr. Reder is a mild-mannered sci-fi geek that has worked in the Information Technology field for over 30 years. During his off hours, he is busy being creative in whatever form the “project-of-the-moment” may take – whether it involves photography, gardening, woodworking, metalworking, repurposing old things, or, of course, writing. He enjoys being outdoors and helping on his parent's farm. His first loves, however, are history and the aforementioned science fiction realm – the past and the future. Recently, he began to explore his own past and discovered to his surprise that there is a good chance his ancestral line leads back to Hugh Capet, King of the Franks, and even farther back to Charlemagne, the First Holy Roman Emperor. Another line leads back to a birth in Virginia within 40 years of the Mayflower.
Mr. Reder infuses all of his creative endeavors with an insight and passion few can match. As a dogged investigator with an unparalleled ability to see what others can't, he boldly ventured down the proverbial rabbit hole and embarked on an amazing journey of discovery in 2008. This culminated in a series of three rather large books he penned over the span of just 6 years – the last, The Masters of the Mirror - Ark of the Apocalypse, being over 800 pages in length – all while working a full-time job. He has been busy writing his fourth book, Veil of Evil, for over a year and a half and it will mark his virgin entry into the field of fiction.
