About the Author

Hello I'm Kenneth, husband and father of three, and I have been a science fiction fan from the time the movies Star Trek and Star Wars made it to theatres. I was 7 when Star Wars came out and barely 10 when Star Trek Star Trek: The Motion Picture was released. Every science fiction story has an underlying question built in. That question is "What if?" This is an empowering question when you think about it, because what comes after can create an entirely new and exciting world. Back in early 2000, I read an article that scientists were researching the real possibility of teleporting matter and that they had successfully teleported a photon. While the article did not get into the specifics it sparked my imagination and gave me the idea for my first science fiction story. "What if we had the technology to teleport?" This was the question that created the whole world my characters live within. While I have written a few short stories and came up with my own version of the Martian Calendar to be found in my short story "The Colony" (the calendar is an amalgam of the best of other suggested calendars), Dream is my first novel. Growing up in the shadow of the famous moon landings gave me an appreciation and fascination for everything to do with space travel, and then my parents brought home our very first computer, a Timex Sinclair. Apparently they had won it as a prize from a company party they went to the night before. Tiny little thing, about as big as a tablet computer, but with a membrane keyboard, and barely more than a smart calculator with 2 kilobytes of RAM; however, it came with a mega 16 k RAM booster. It had to be connected to a TV like a game console, and used a cassette tape recorder to store the programs I created for it, but it was AWESOME! Computers were needed to get us into space and to the moon, and they have been used on nearly every space probe and every space craft; needless to say, but I was hooked. To this day, I love building, programming, fixing all kinds of computers-yep it's how I currently make my living. Some people say I live in my own little science fiction world; well, I can think of worse places to live.
