Biography

Alrek Brandvold attended university in the United States, graduating with a major in engineering, and a minor in business administration. I have worked in both business and state government. The early part of my career was spent in design and testing work on early jet airliners and missile weapons systems. Later on, I switched to electric utilities, where I was involved in permitting, environmental review, and economic evaluation of electric power plants and high voltage transmission lines. The last part of my career involved dealing with the Federal government on rate and regulatory matters and regulatory compliance. It was during this frustrating time dealing with politics and lobbying that the idea for the Destiny Trilogy began to take shape in my mind. It was not until I retired that I could focus enough time and attention on this story to get it completed. It has been a multiyear effort, and is my only published fiction.
