R.P. Ruggiero lives in Colorado with his wife and two sons. He spends as much time as he can in the outdoors and strives to live by Robert Heinlein's credo that, "Specialization is for insects." When he is not outdoors, writing, or learning a new skill, he works coordinating people to achieve their common goals. He brings his almost two decades of years of experience in group dynamics--particularly when people are under stress--to good use in writing The Brushfire Plague; a novel grounded in neighborhood defense during a devastating plague.

The feedback from a wide variety of readers has truly been heartwarming. Some of the best comments have been from new readers in the genre who've commented, "you've given me something to think about" or "maybe I should have more than a few days of food on hand." I've also enjoyed hearing from dedicated survivalists who've appreciated the books realism and provoking them to think about issues they haven't ye.
But, most importantly, has been hearing from readers of all stripes who've engaged with the characters, laughed and cried with them, and are eagerly awaiting the sequel to hear what will happen next with Cooper, Jake, Dranko, and the rest!
