Ken Berglund


Ken Berglund was born and raised in Southern California, spending most of his early years in Downey and Long Beach. He spent 4 1/2 years in Asia working as an English teacher in Taiwan. He met his wife Chien Yu (Christy) while working for Hess Language School in Hsinchu. His experiences in Taiwan were documented in his first book, "An American Teacher in Taiwan."

Ken moved his family to Austin, Texas in 2008, and his struggles and successes were documented in his second book, "From Taiwan to Texas: Life in Mid-America." His third book, "The Reluctant Austinite," is the third and final book in a trilogy of memoirs & anecdotes about life in America and Taiwan.

His first fiction book, "Interstate 10", was released in January of 2013 to very positive reviews. He followed up that book with another fiction book, "Small Town Evil", in February 2013. "Small Town Evil" became a massive hit and went on to become a best-seller in the Horror genre, selling thousands of copies and staying in the top 50 for over 3 years, and reaching as high as #1, at one point only being outsold by veteran horror writers Stephen King and Anne Rice.

"The Dead Ones" was released in April of 2013. Ken described it as "sort of a companion piece to 'Interstate 10.' If people liked that one, they will probably like this one too."

"Four Bites", an anthology of 4 horror stories both new and old, was released in November, 2013.

"Small Town Evil 2", the highly anticipated sequel to Ken's biggest seller, was finally released in late February, 2014.

In April of 2014, Ken released a compilation of all three of his non-fiction books. Together for the first time, "An American Teacher in Taiwan," "From Taiwan to Texas: Life in Mid-America," and "The Reluctant Austinite" are featured in "Taiwan to Texas: The Complete Trilogy" along with new material that Ken added for 2014.
