About the Author

L. L. Drew never considered being a writer when he was growing up in Michigan, even though he enjoyed writing assignments when he was in primary school (always, if allowed, his stories turned to science fiction). His primary love at a young age was working on mechanical things around the house, just to understand how they worked. His interest spread to electronics, as he neared the end of high school. Selecting Kellogg Community College to continue his education, he chose electronics for his field of study (the curriculum included vacuum tube circuits only since transistor circuits were still new and integrated circuits weren’t a reality). With a degree in electronics under his belt, Lyle joined the Navy as an Electronics Technician - Radar, but he wanted to return to college. Two years later, the Navy selected him as a candidate for NESEP (Navy Enlisted Scientific Education Program). He returned to college at Marquette University in Milwaukee to study Mechanical Engineering while still on active duty. Drew graduated with a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering (BSME) and returned to the Navy as an Ensign. So where did writing come into his life?
After leaving the Navy in the early 1980’s, Drew read one of several short stories written by his father. One of the stories followed the sci-fi genre, intriguing him. With his father’s blessing, he worked on the story to see if he could expand on it, finding that he easily grew it into a novel (this became the fifth novel in his own series). The problem was that the story developed questions for Drew that needed answered, such as what happened before and after that story—nine additional novels later, he answered those questions.
While working as a Mechanical Engineer, Drew did most of his writing. He decided to try publishing, settling on a vanity press. The novel was lengthy (well over 600 pages), but that didn’t stop people from reading it. The plot excited his readers and many eagerly asked when the next book would be coming out. Drew dropped the publication, though, when work demanded much of his time, and he decided to turn to e books while he continued to write. So far, he has written 21 novels and is in the process of publishing them.
At present, Drew lives in Ohio with his lovely wife/ editing assistant, Rita.
