Derek Edgington was born in Pleasanton, California in the 90s, amongst a generation that would grow fitfully alongside the technology boom. By high school, he’d exhausted the local bookstore’s supply of Sci-Fi & Fantasy, so he turned to the rapidly expanding ebook market to sate his appetite for stories of faraway worlds populated by unforgettable characters. It wasn’t long before he thought that he could write as well as any of the books he’d sifted through the slush pile. And so began his writing journey. He published his first book at the age of 17 and has been writing ever since. More recently he graduated from Loyola Marymount University and writes full-time in Marina Del Rey, California.
