John Appel

John Appel volunteered to jump out of planes before he’d ever been in a plane; his friends and family say this sums up his approach to life pretty well. He writes science fiction and fantasy and the occasional tabletop RPG adventure. A lifelong Marylander, he lives in the Baltimore suburbs with his wife and children. He masqueraded as a technology risk manager to pay the bills after two decades as an information security pro before turning full-time writer. When not writing, rolling dice, or keeping the bad guys at bay, he enjoys rum and swords, but not both at the same time. John is a graduate of the Viable Paradise writing workshop. His first novel, ASSASSIN'S ORBIT, will be published by Rebellion in July 2021.
