Ken Grimwood

Ken was a Pensacola native, born there in 1944. He took an interest in radio journalism while growing up and, in the early to mid 1960’s, worked in news for WLAK. He went on to study psychology at Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, and, in 1969, wrote short fiction for “The Observer,” a student publication.

In later years Ken became an accomplished writer and published five novels with Doubleday and Arbor House. Some of his early works were written while he was still news director at KNX in Los Angeles. His 1987 time-travel novel, "Replay," winner of the World Fantasy Award for Best Novel in 1988, enabled him to leave KNX for full-time writing, where he wrote both under his own name and several pseudonyms, including Alan Cochran.

Ken died at age 59 in 2003 in Santa Barbara, California of a heart attack. He had been married once but had no children.
