Alex Rath, Caucasian man with glasses

Alex Rath is a best-selling science fiction and post-apocalyptic novelist, currently residing in Columbia, South Carolina, with his wife and elite gymnast daughter. With works published in the Four Horsemen Universe, This Fallen World, and the Salvage Title universe, Rath now has spread out with his own Colonization Science Fiction with the Terran Space Project, starting with Seeds of Terra. By day, Rath is an IT professional and has been for more than 30+ years. He has worked as a programmer/developer, webmaster, information security specialist and solutions design specialist. He has worked for large companies such as AOL and TD Bank. 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. Having grown up in Goldsboro, North Carolina, close enough to Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, where his father was stationed to see F-4's and B-52's flying over on a regular basis, Rath grew up with a love of the military. That continues to his writing where he includes a military element to almost everything he writes, with a focus on getting it right.
