Gene Masters

Gene Masters is a retired consulting engineer living in East Tennessee with his wife, Ruth, and two cats. They have two grown daughters, and two grandchildren. He is the author of several technical treatises, including his doctoral dissertation, but Silent Warriors: Submarine Warfare in the Pacific was his first serious attempt at fiction; it has been followed by Operation Exodus, and, most recently, by The Laconia Incident.

Masters received a commission in the U.S. Navy on graduation from college, and his first tour of duty was aboard a transport in the Western Pacific. His second tour was aboard a recommissioned and updated diesel-electric submarine, the USS Angler. Angler was originally commissioned in 1943, and made seven war patrols in the Pacific before being decommissioned. Her updating to an SSK-class boat in the 1950’s fitted her for operation against cold war submarine adversaries with advanced soundproofing and sonar. Masters left Angler and active duty after a Mediterranean tour. Later Naval Reserve assignments included the diesel-electric submarines USS Manta and the USS Ling.

After active duty, Masters pursued a career in engineering, and served in various companies until settling into a career as a consulting engineer. He retired in 2009.
