Dennis Meier studied nuclear engineering at Texas A&M University not long after the discovery of atoms?Democritus was a classmate. Decades later he studied technical communication at Boise State University.
A native of College Station, Texas, Dennis moved to Idaho to work at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory when he learned that, yes, there are places on this planet that aren't, hot, humid, and teeming with cockroaches and fire ants.
He lives in Boise, with his wife, Donna, and their son, Justin. (Justin Meier is a member of the three-time USAJRF national champion Summerwind Skippers jump rope team.)
When Dennis is not writing Science Club Kids books, he works as a technical editor for the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality.
Dennis' favorite books include Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien, the Cyberiad by Stanislaw Lem, and the Retief series created by Keith Laumer. He desperately wishes that he had kept the Retief books, because they are exceptionally hard to find these days.
