Kal Spriggs is creating Science Fiction and Fantasy Books

Hey everyone, I'm Kal Spriggs, a SF&F author.  I'm also a US Army combat veteran and I use a lot of my experiences from the military in my writing.

I'm an Amazon Bestselling author and my most recent series, Children of Valor, is a young adult science fiction story about a girl who goes unwillingly to a military academy.  I currently have over twenty novels in print along with short stories in two anthologies.  I tend to release four to six books a year.  I write a huge variety of genres, ranging from Military Science Fiction to Space Opera and Epic Fantasy to Urban Fantasy and even non-fiction military stories.  I write fast-paced, character-driven stories about people who try to improve the universes in which they live.

I'm a US Army combat veteran with nine years active service and I'm currently a reservist.  I wrote my first and second published novels while I was deployed in Iraq and finished my epic fantasy novel, Echo of the High Kings, while deployed in Afghanistan.  I currently live in Colorado, though for the past fifteen years I've moved at least once a year (sometimes across town, sometimes to other countries).  I'm a big fan of the outdoors: skiing, hiking, camping, and fishing.  I'm a gamer and I play a variety of games from tabletop strategy games to FPS games online.  I'm an avid reader and I can devour an entire novel in four hours or less.  I grew up reading books about adventures in far away places, from authors like Andre Norton, Robert A. Heinlein, Piers Anthony, and David Eddings.

I've visited 30+ countries and I love traveling (though most of my more recent travels have been military related and therefore less of the sight-seeing type).  I draw a lot of my writing inspiration from other cultures and people that I've met in my travels.  I think there's a vast potential to humanity and many of my books delve into that.   We have such creative power and amazing potential, for both good and evil.

Why am I here on Patreon?  This is a great way to share what I'm doing and to get out news of my works in progress and upcoming books.  It's also a way for me to link with fans and to share some of my writing before it goes live.

If you're here, you probably already know about what I write, but if you don't, then read on below.  All of my published books are available in ebook format at Amazon, in paperback pretty much everywhere, and many of my stories are also available in audiobook format.  If you become a patron, you'll be able to view some of my unpublished short stories, novels, and even works in progress.

When I hit 25 patrons, I'll write and release a special patron-only short story, featuring patrons as characters, with the universe chosen by the patrons in a mass melee brawl (or a vote, votes work too, I guess).
