K.B. Sprague is a writer and physicist who enjoys letting his mind wander beyond the confines of equations and into the realm of epic fantasy. Strange physics has always interested him and that ultimately comes out in his creations. After all, epic fantasy often involves just about the strangest “physics” imaginable.
Born in small-town Northern Ontario, he developed a curious mind and a true appreciation of the natural world during his youngest years. K.B. Sprague went on to attend universities in Southern Ontario, earning a doctorate degree in applied mathematics and theoretical physics. Summer work terms still kept him grounded in the North though, spent working in a uranium mine and mineral prospecting camps. Upon graduating, he put his skills to use as a researcher in the natural resources sector and later in the defense sector, with excursions into nuclear and particle physics, medical imaging, directed energy, geomodelling, complex systems, and artificial intelligence.
