Gene Lempp is a fiction author actively writing his dreams. His passion for words springs from years spent wandering the shaded vales of Middle Earth and Shannara , to the dark imaginings of Aesop, the Brothers Grimm, and Lovecraft, only to slip from the shadows to sore once more into the worm-ridden skies of Pern.
Gene has worked in healthcare, sales, security, manufacturing, retail, and as a Pokemon gym leader for disadvantaged children. For the past 16 years, Gene worked as a data miner, speed analyst, information editor, and client service account manager for a now vaporized Fortune 500 public relations and marketing firm. Currently, he has a day job.
Ancient history, archaeology, mythology, folklore, and fable — what makes “us” tick as a species, and how did we develop and continue to iterate the world we’ve collectively created — these are the heart of Gene’s passion and writing.
In his popular original series, Designing from Bones, Gene blends his research into the past with his love of writing to unearth an endless treasure trove of story ideas.
“Give the same seed to a thousand different writers and watch a thousand different stories bloom to life.”
As a writer, Gene blends elements of alternate history, alternate reality, the paranormal, fantasy, science fiction, and horror in his word cauldron to create new realities, mythologies, and folklore with a twist of a lime.
“Only the moment is eternal and in a moment, everything will change,” sums the heart of Gene’s philosophy.
