Kenneth Yeager

Biography

I was born the same year we first set foot on the moon (1969), so not only is that a special year for me, but for mankind too. The rocket even launched from the state in which I was born (Florida)--awesome! I guess it's only natural then, that I gained a fascination with space, science and science fiction. When I graduated from high school, I joined the military with the hope that I could pursue computer science and maybe get involved with the space program, alas, with my medical and physical prowess (I grew too tall too fast causing marfan syndrome), it was not meant to be. So I went to college and studied Computer Science and Electronics Engineering. Met my wife there, and we've been together ever since. We have three beautiful children, a dog, two cats, and two rabbits. Over the years my love for space, science and science fiction hasn't waned and so I found an outlet in writing. I hope you enjoy my stories as much I as I did writing them. Maybe one day we will all be able to leave this planet, return to the moon and explore the cosmos. It would certainly fulfill my lifelong dream.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I had always wanted to write a book; however, life has a way of getting in the way of your dreams. First with the rigors of college then the struggle of finding work, starting a family, then building and moving to a new home. Then life threw me a new curve ball. During the market crash caused by the internet bubble burst, back in 2001, I decided it was time to write. Right after I got laid off from my job in technical support, but just before I began working in real estate management; having time on my hands and lots of ideas in my head--especially after reading a lot about the latest research and technology advances--I needed to tell a story.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
As an author you get to create a world of your very own, and while you write the story you actually immerse yourself in that world and carry on conversations with your characters. Some stories are told by a narrator while others take on a first person point of view where the author takes on the persona of either the main character or a support character to tell the story. I've told stories from both types and they are equally fun to write. When you create your own world, the only limitation is your own imagination.
