Author R.T. Breach began his career in the United States Navy as an Electronics Technician in San Diego, CA. That was just after the end of the Soviet Union and the Cold War. No, he wasn’t a SEAL or Special Forces. He is a voracious reader with an active imagination, who was lucky enough to travel around the world a few times at a young age.

With the end of his six-year enlistment, Breach moved from California to Georgia, where he dove into the copy machine industry. This occupation naturally brought him into the IT world. After decades of story ruminations and nothing actually typed, Breach finally began the author’s journey. A year later, Karl Gruben and Operation Palmetto were born.

Today, Breach is happily married and still living in Dallas, GA. The kids have left the nest. Now it’s just them and the dogs. And a Ball Python named Quetzalcoatl.
