Special to ColumbiaMagazine.com
William Bryan Miller, a resident of Glens Fork, KY, has published a novel, Kyrathaba Rising,. He was born in Frankfort, KY, raised in Crocus, Ky, and now lives in Glens Fork, Kentucky with wife Susan, and their three children: Hannah, Grant, and Emma. Two other children live nearby.
Here's a blurb from the ebook:
170 years from now, aliens decimate Earth. A relative handful of humans survive, hidden in deep subterranean enclaves that offer some protection from surface radiation. Although the main attack is now seven years in the past, one alien ship remains in orbit, and the conquerors are not content merely to let humanity lick its wounds.About the author and his family
Bryan and Susan's two dogs are as different as night and day. The five year old miniature schnauzer is of serious mien, typically stationing herself at the door, ready to bark an alert and intercept any "intruders". She also is self-appointed breaker-upper of spats, wrestling, or anything else among family members that makes a level of noise above that of normal conversation. Their two year old Boston Terrier, Millie, has personality in spades. Her favorite activities include defecating in the house (yes, she still does this), begging for food at supper time, and cuddling. She is much more the lapdog than the schnauzer, Savy.
Bryan works as a licensed professional clinical counselor. His career in mental health treatment has, so far, spanned fourteen years. He works with children, adolescents, and adults on issues spanning the entirety of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition.
Bryan is an avid hobbyist computer programmer. Most of Bryan's products, thus far, have been donationware.
Bryan attended undergraduate college at Western Kentucky University, from 1989 to 1994 (he wishes to point out that it took five years to get his B.A. in Psychology only because he switched majors three times, and blew most of one semester due to love-sickness). He went on to earn a Master of Counseling degree at Lindsey Wilson College in their CACREP approved graduate counseling program, one of the first (and still one of the best) in the United States. Bryan later obtained his LPCC credential and has been practicing as a licensed counselor for over a decade.
Bryan's wife, Susan, is a registered nurse. She works for a local home healthcare agency, making home visits to care for her beloved patients.
Bryan, his wife, and their children attend a local Methodist church, where they remain actively involved in Sunday School, Worship, and children's ministry.
In addition to computer programming in C#, Bryan also enjoys reading science- and fantasy-fiction, writing, hiking, and camping. He maintains an interest in the martial arts, and earned his 1st-degree brown belt in Shaolin-Do at the age of fifteen.
Some of Bryan's favorite authors are Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Raymond E. Feist, Anne Rice, T. H. Lain, Greg Keyes, Stephen R. Donaldson, Neal Asher, George R. R. Martin and Gregory Benford.
Kyrathaba Rising available as an ebook in 9 different file formats (including mobi and epub). It's available on Scribd, Amazon, and Smashwords, and is currently being reviewed by focus groups on Goodreads.
