Grant D. Koeneke grew up in the Portland, OR. During high school he had aptitude for the arts and specifically toward writing. His senior year he talked to Stephen King about what it would take to be an author which left an impression he would never forget. College didn't fit him well and he pursued his career in computers where he learned at 18 to design database systems. Moving from company to company searching for something that fit him and for something he enjoyed, he eventually moved up the ranks into an executive position. Grant never quite found what he was looking for in the world of computers and constantly stuck to his artistic side. Spending his personal time with painting and writing as an outlet, he wrote two screenplays, several poems and painted many paintings. Finally, he went back to what made him happy. While trying to decide what he wanted to do and what made him most happy he started to write novels. With several ideas written down he decided to go back to the one idea he had in high school that he always associated to a conversation he had with Stephen King. Call it an itch that needed to be scratched. Developing the idea in a more modern world and now with a more comprehensive background he wrote his first novel, Transcendence, in 3 weeks. It was only the first book in a series, but it was something he felt great accomplishment in doing. Transcendence started it all, but The Seven Saga was always the goal. He never imagined he could actually write one novel let alone seven, but the books wrote themselves. Getting lost in the world he creates when he writes, he becomes oblivious to the world around him. Sometimes this can be problematic for his roommate and friends. Currently, Grant lives in Southern California and lives in the same house that Jordan Belfort lived in when he wrote his novel 'The Wolf of Wallstreet'. Coincidence? Maybe or maybe not. Now Grant spends his days trying to decide which idea to put down on paper next. Currently, Grant lives in Southern California with his wife Nicole, his muse.
