Michael Laird is the author of the Agminate series of books and short stories. He lives in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of northern California with an amazing wife who saved him from wearing white studded belts in divey Stockton clubs, a son who teaches him patience through viral dance moves, and a daughter who has him wrapped around her finger.

Michael's braggy accomplishments include nearly passing out at the top of Mt. Whitney, dealing Texas Hold'em to an unimpressed David Draiman, marrying a Viking on purpose, and sweating on command the way some actors can cry. He's the perfect person to write dark fantasy because, aside from knowing the ropes better than he does when to end a sentence, he's been told his writing is "good, even though it's dark fantasy."

He dedicates his works to his family; The Writer's Edge; all of his fellow Wattpad writers, especially @The3Dreamers , @ChayAvalerias , @kheprinmatu , and @kylerobertschultz , and anyone who's ever pretended not to hear the noises he makes in the gym. These victories are for you!
