Ryan Spielvogel is a lifelong sci-fi nerd. Studying physics and chemistry in college only worsened his obsession and weakened his tether to reality. He wrote his first sci-fi novel, Gateway to Oblivion, while a third-year resident training in family medicine and obstetrics. He has since written a sequel, A Galaxy Shattered.
Spielvogel works in Sacramento, California, as a physician and full-time faculty for the Sutter Health Family Medicine Residency Program. He also teaches at the UC Davis School of Medicine. Spielvogel is also a dedicated husband and father.
