Mike Marsbergen was born in a puddle of blood, floating amidst space debris and all the junk/politicians we launch up there after it's decided they've worn out their welcome here on Earth. Mike Marsbergen was also taught that writing your own biography in third-person perspective makes you seem like a total turd, and finds the practice deserving of a one-way, all-expenses-paid trip to the Sun. Therefore, Mike Marsbergen will now terminate this particular operation and begin again in the more homely, less pretentious first-person perspective.

I love to write and that's what I'll do. You might even say I live to write, if these wires that run from my computer to my veins are anything to go by...

I hail from Canada, but more and more I find myself longing for a different native land. Maybe even a different planet. This old world, she's changing.

My stories range from comedy, horror and sci-fi, to serious works that may even make you weep, depending on your blood sugar levels. When reading my stories, I recommend you always have a drink, a snack and a trash can within arm's reach--just in case.

My influences are vast and endless. Anything I read, watch, listen to or experience, really. But some authors who I feel have influenced my style(s) more than any others are: Hunter S. Thompson, J.P. Donleavy, Stephen King, Tim Dorsey, Zecharia Sitchin, J.K. Rowling, Clive Barker, Lee Child and John David Morley.
