Kenneth W. Barber was born in the small town of LaGrange, GA where he spent his childhood intrepidly exploring universes. He has been pirate and wizard, starship captain and spy, king and pauper, knight and monster. Now he creates universes of his own for other travelers to explore. Words are wielded as weapons in his quest to elevate the Oxford to the King of Commas. He writes to bring joy and adventure to others, hoping they realize that no matter how different they may feel they are in fact members of a larger community. His lifelong love of the written word inevitably resulted in penning stories of his own, the first at around seven years old. Books have been special to him his entire life and he hopes his work might ignite a passion for reading, or writing, in others. When not writing or reading his hobbies include Nerd Culture, movies, music, and Gracie Jiu Jitsu.
