Casey E. Berger is the author of the forthcoming Resonance Saga (First Light, Ursa Major, and Dark Stars) from Aethon Books, a space opera trilogy set in the distant future of the Milky Way galaxy.

She earned a PhD in computational physics from UNC Chapel Hill and has bachelor's degrees in philosophy and film production from Boston University and in physics from the Ohio State University. Since school is obviously her natural habitat, she now works as a professor of physics, where she studies the complicated interactions of subatomic particles and encourages the next generation of brilliant scientists. She lives a nomadic academic life, currently in New England, but you might find her wandering in the woods, listening to music, or endlessly daydreaming.
