“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”   Ephesians 2:8-9

K.A. Cummins writes science fiction.  She published more than a dozen technical documents during her career in the telecommunications industry.  In the third quarter of 2016, her short story, The Warehouse Tour, was awarded an Honorable Mention in the Writers of the Future contest.  She is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers Association and the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.

Born and raised in Huntsville, Alabama, K.A. Cummins began to explore creative writing as a young girl.  Initially pursued as a means of self-expression, it was not until adulthood that she discovered her passion for fiction writing and began writing stories for others.

After high school, K.A. Cummins attended Athens State University where she double-majored in Mathematics and Computer Science. She graduated with honors in 2002 and was awarded a Graduate Teaching Assistantship from the University of Alabama in Huntsville. However, Cummins left after a semester to pursue her career and to marry her husband, a former Marine who was stationed in California during that time.

A casual pursuer of adventure with a fear of heights, Cummins has been tandem skydiving, white water rafting, and cold weather camping. She has also climbed the Mayan Ruins of Lamanai in Belize, hiked through the Belizean Rainforest, and explored Rio Secreto in Mexico. In her most recent adventure, she reeled in a couple of sharks off the coast of Southern California.

Cummins lives in Minnesota with her husband and their youngest son, whom she homeschools. They are active church members, their faith in Christ being the primary influence in their lives.
