About Eugene T Schurter

Eugene lives on the West Coast in Vancouver, Washington with his wife, Christy, and their miniature schnauzer, Desperado. Since grade school, being a Science Fiction Author has been his dream. Now, at 62, he’s fulfilling that dream. It’s taken a bout with cancer for the light to go on but so be it!

In his non-writing career, Eugene started his career as an award-winning instrumentation and controls engineer. He won the George Westinghouse Signature of Excellence Award for Engineering twice, then went on to found several software companies with two actually being successful.

He won a Global Thought Leadership Award, was Keynote speaker for two years on the international CIO Financial Conference circuit, taught Master Classes in Business Process Management in 9 countries and 4 continents, and has over a dozen business books published. He was also a sub-2 minute half-miler in High School and College. He can play the guitar (a little) and loves to sing karaoke.

Eugene loves to create and tell stories to entertain, while exploring bold ideas and creative possibility. He likes to challenge our perception of reality, speculating on how advances in human intelligence and science can open new worlds and increase understanding of this thing we call the Human Experience.

He often incorporates unique, personal experiences into his writing, with Dark Web Rising drawing numerous elements from his experience as President of CIP Core, Inc. a non-profit educational organization focused on Cyber Security and the Operational Reliability of the North America Bulk Electric System. In this role, he deals with the seamy underworld of malicious hacking and cyber terrorism daily.
