Kal Spriggs

Biography

Kal Spriggs started reading science fiction and fantasy in elementary school. Eventually he was the only eight year old with permission from the local public library to check out books from the adult section because he’d read everything else. He’s written ever since he started running out of ‘good’ stuff to read when he was twelve, although he likes to think his writing has improved, if only slightly.

His range of interests has since expanded to include computer and console games, tabletop RPGs, and strategy games.

An Army brat born overseas, Spriggs was born with a wanderlust to see what lies over the next horizon. Spriggs visited 22 countries on five continents before he turned 25, and hopes to add many more to the list, as well as revisit some of his favorite places. Spriggs loves to ski, hike, fish, and camp, especially in the Rocky Mountains where he spent much of his childhood.

Spriggs is a graduate of the United States Merchant Marine Academy with an engineering degree. He followed in his parents’ footsteps and joined the US Army after graduation and currently serves as an active duty Engineer captain. As well as earning a masters degree in environmental engineering, he’s been deployed to both Afghanistan and Iraq
