Ken Bass developed a lifetime love of disaster stories from the moment he read Disaster at Johnstown: The Great Flood as a fourth grader growing up in Columbia, SC.
After attending Yale (´80) and Georgetown Law School (´83), Ken practiced law at Kirkland & Ellis for over 20 years before deciding to pursue his passion for writing.
Having read every decent disaster book available, the first book Ken decided to write is the compelling story of the devastation New York City might suffer at the hands of a major hurricane.
When he´s not writing, Ken coaches his sons´ soccer teams, closely follows the weather and blogs on politics and other topics at xcurmudgeon.blogspot.com.
