Alan Michael Atkinson is from Australia. He grew up on a remote North Queensland cattle property and attended boarding school for his higher education. Now living in town, he has been by turns a Chinese food delivery driver, a taxi driver and a security guard. He likes to read, and plays tabletop roleplaying games when he can.
He's met both Felicia Day (Buffy, Dollhouse, Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog) and Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Castle, Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog), and has the photos to prove it.
Welcome to Utopia is his first novel.
