Bret M. Funk was born on September 11, 1976 in Ocean County, New Jersey. He spent the formative years of his life a little further south, in the small town of Barnsboro, where he attended Clearview Regional High School and did his best to alleviate the boredom of life in suburban America.
At a young age, Funk developed a great love of reading, science fiction and fantasy in particular. He spent many afternoons engrossed in the universes created by great writers, and many more in worlds of his own creation. In 1994, Funk relocated to New Orleans, LA to attend Tulane University, but his fascination with science fiction, and the many worlds he had created, followed him. After earning a Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry and a Master's in Epidemiology from Tulane, Funk devoted himself to writing full time. He is the author of numerous articles and short stories (some published, many locked away.)
