Joseph Rhea is a scientist, science fiction author, computer game designer, and believer in moving humanity forward, not backward. Advised by his high school English teacher to pursue a life of writing, he instead chose a career in engineering and science, driven by a need to explore the world and help create new technologies. Now he has come full circle and is using that experience to become a new voice in science fiction. Learn more at JosephRhea.com

To me, a mystery is just something that is not yet known, and so I just keep at it until I discover the answer. I was like this with magic tricks as a child, where I was able to figure out how to copy every trick I saw performed in TV. Looking back, I guess it was this attitude that led me into a career in science. (less)

Even though I know now that such a structure probably isn't technically possible (not enough mass in any known solar system to build it at 1 AU radius from sun) it was, nevertheless, something that made me dream of visiting it for years after reading the first book as a kid.

New edition of NOVUM coming

Currently #editing the crap out of my NOVUM saga, turning 5 novellas written over 5 years, into a cohesive novel. A single novel was my goal but I broke it into 5 parts to motivate me. Now I'm making it the way it was intended. Lots of work but I'm enjoying revisiting this world.

"Quite short but has an enjoyable plot and interesting characters. A promising introduction to a story with a lot of potential, hopefully it will be expanded in a sequel or a series of novels."
