Exposed to sword-and-sorcery fantasy at the impressionable age of 12, David Michael Williams dove headlong into the brutal arena of fiction writing when he competed in a short story contest against his sixth-grade classmates. While his story—a glorified battle scene, really—garnered no accolades, two of its characters survived for many years thereafter, eventually starring in three full-length novels that comprise The Renegade Chronicles (not yet published). Following a fourth novel set in the same magical world, David decided to branch out and write a book unlike any he had written—or read—before. The sci-fi/fantasy hybrid, If Souls Can Sleep, is currently under editorial consideration.

With a background in journalism, public relations and marketing, David continues his love affair with the written word at an advertising agency in Fond du Lac, Wis. He is a member of Allied Authors, a writing group dating back to the 1930s. His lifestyle column (“Generation Why?”) has run in the local newspaper since 2006. He has a wonderful wife, who somehow puts up with his enduring addiction to storytelling, and two larger-than-life children—a.k.a. “the scamp” and “the rascal.”
