Zac Topping grew up in Eastern Connecticut where, contrary to popular belief, it’s not all trust funds and yacht clubs. He spent his formative years on the move, as some do, and it was in the fifth grade where he discovered an outlet for his active imagination through writing. After high school, Zac joined the United States Army where he slept in dirt holes, jumped out of perfectly good airplanes and drove armored vehicles. He also served two separate tours in Iraq, spending a year each in Mosul and Baghdad. He eventually found his way home where he attended college and rediscovered his love of writing. To call it an obsession would be an understatement. He currently lives with his wife in the quiet farm town of Canterbury, Connecticut and is a career fire fighter for the city he grew up in. His first novel, Wake of War, comes out in 2022 from Tor/Forge.
