The Author

Carl Sorenson

Carl has been a fan of science fiction (and fantasy) for many years - always interested in an intriguing premise matched with a good story. When he finds that an idea has been developing in his head for a while and won't leave, it's time to start writing!

Carl's debut novel, Nissus, reflects his deep interest in understanding how science and technology can affect people - what their experiences are and how it informs their values and sense of purpose.

When Carl is not reading or writing, he is often hiking the trails and mountains of North Carolina with his family. Professionally, he helps develop software that models the operation and economics of the electric grid. He is passionate about human rights, human development, civic involvement and democracy, and education, as well as topics around the climate crisis and climate/energy nexus.
