Alex Rath

Alex Rath is a Military Science Fiction, Post-Apocalyptic, and Fantasy author, currently residing in Columbia, South Carolina, with his wife and daughter.
He has been creative in one form or another since childhood. He got his start in fantasy with Dungeons and Dragons in 1979, and kept going from there. Some of the ideas that he writes come from his extensive experience in role playing games, starting with D&D, and onward through other games like Star Fleet Battles, Battletech, Mechwarrior, Shadowrun, Masquerade, and too many more to name.

From there, he took his creativity online to more online games than can be remembered by writing character backgrounds, stories, and game related fiction. Now, he puts his creativity to the book format.

In addition to his gaming background, Alex has been an IT professional for 25+ years. He has worked as a programmer/developer, webmaster, information security specialist, and solutions design specialist. This background allows him to incorporate some technical savvy into his stories, while his experience interacting with non-technical customers allows him to do so in a way that isn't confusing, or 'too technical' for a layperson to understand.

Alex continues to write in the Four Horsemen Universe, as well as the Fallen World, and Salvage Title universes.
