Ralph Kern

For as long as I can remember I've always enjoyed science fiction, especially the grand masters of the genre, Arthur C Clarke, Stephen Baxter, Alistair Reynolds and many more and finally decided to try my hand.

I hold a degree in Aerospace Technology and won the opportunity to work in Milan on the design of a Satellite, got a Pilots License (before I learnt to drive) which led to the best weekend job going, taking Air Cadets flying in a motor gliders and for a year was an officer cadet in the TA.

After all that I had a bit of a quarter life crisis and decided that I would succumb to the kid in me and follow a career in chasing bad guys. That led to a huge hole in my life though, the desire to think about what I consider 'the big issues' a desire I'm addressing with my writing.

Nowadays, I've calmed down a bit and enjoy spending time traveling, seeing what the world has to offer, scuba diving, long distance running and, of course, writing.
