Kenneth Muckenhaupt


I am an Executive IT Specialist at IBM Corporation where I have worked for almost 33 years. My education includes a Bachelor of Arts from Marist College and a Masters of Science in Technical Writing from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. In addition to my professional work in the computer development discipline, I am a certified emergency medical technician and volunteer firefighter for the Arlington Fire District in Poughkeepsie, NY. Since 2005, I have served as Commissioner on the fire district’s Board of Fire Commissioners.

Most of the writing throughout my professional career has been technical, and I have published articles in trade magazines and technical publications of my employer. In contrast, the Nuum Desecration is my first novel which developed from the drive to write a fantasy story that transcends the typical didactics of the fantasy genre by basing the story on a very common human struggle: the fight against tyrannical subjugation that threatens free thinking and expression. My interest in fantasy stems primarily from a life long interest in science fiction and fantasy cinema.
