Hey there!Me by Sarah Smaller I’m Michael L. Watson and I’m a fantasy writer. I’m 33 years old and live in Dallas, Texas, USA.

It’s hard for me to pin-point the exact moment when I fell in love with Sci-Fi and Fantasy. It was more of a period, between 9 and 11 years old, during which I discovered the Star Wars trilogy, The Hobbit, and JRPGs on my Super Nintendo. The floodgates were wide open after that, leading to uncountable hours absorbed in books, movies, and games.

My education was in mathematics and there’s still an underlying logical structure and perspective lurking below the fantastic stories about airships, flame golems, over-the-top fight scenes, and magic-wielding heroes.

Skies Unbroken is a serialized pulp fantasy saga set in a world of ceaseless skies traversed by all manner of airships. The story is ongoing and in its second ‘season’. Chapters are published weekly on this very website!
Season One wrapped up in October 2016 and is available in its entirety here and in a compilation ebook on Amazon.

Valkwitch is my first full novel, self-published on various digital platforms in July 2013. It is the opening book of a longer potential series, and the first effort from a list of long simmering ideas in my head.

Waterlogged is a sequel novella to Valkwitch, also self-published on Amazon in March 2015.
