G. A. Semones remembers reading his first space opera when about nine years old, one of the many books in the Perry Rhodan series. J. R. R. Tolkien later beguiled him, and ruled him with the One Ring. Mr. Semones began writing in his teens, but only recently returned to his fiction, primarily (and unsurprisingly) fantasy and science fiction. He is a Liberty Hall Writers denizen.
Mr. Semones by profession is a software engineer of scary things that self-organize and self-heal. He is a devoted husband and Dad who lives with his wife and family in "a geographical oddity. Two weeks from everywhere!". When not writing, he enjoys history, cryptography, fossils, reading, and gardening with his wife.
