David Ekrut

Dr. David Ekrut was raised in a small community in Arkansas, where the abundance of nature fostered his imagination. Whether lost in a book, table-top gaming, or roaming the countryside from coast to coast, expanding his mind inevitably led him to the craft of writing.

Only in the infinite workspace of heartfelt creativity has he ever felt any sense of freedom. Ekrut holds degrees in Liberal Arts-Theatre from Arkansas State University, both a Bachelor's and Master's of Science in Applied Mathematics from the University of Central Arkansas, and a Master's in Biomedical Mathematics and Ph.D. in Biomedical Mathematics from Florida State University.

His scientific expertise has aided in creating physically believable fiction with rules and structure to bring his universe to life.

For a day job, he does brain and breast cancer research at the University of Texas at Austin in the Center for Computational Oncology, a department of the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences.

When time and his wife allows, he finds an escape from this reality in the universes of his own imaginings.
