Captain Charles Swensen was born and raised in Marin County California. He attended Cornell University on an NRPTC scholarship. Upon graduation, he received a commission as a naval officer and went to sea.
After thirty years of active and reserve service he retired as a captain. In civilian life, he pursued a career as a civil engineer. He published articles in the Proceedings of the Naval Institute and in trade journals before turning to fiction. He currently resides in Marin County in a home built by his grandfather nearly seventy years ago.
He lives with his wife and continues to consult on engineering issues, although these days he devotes a great deal of time to writing and staying in touch with his son and two stepchildren.
