As a child, T.K. read Asimov, watched Star Wars, and dreamed of someday writing stories about stars. That wish was partially fulfilled - T.K.'s first published work was a scientific paper in the Astrophysical Journal. Years passed, more research papers were written and published, a PhD in physics was earned. One day, an ambitious and headstrong physicist settled in T.K.'s mind, and began telling a story. Bit by bit, that story unfolded. Ten years later, T.K.'s first novel, Initial Conditions, was published.
