About Mike Eschbach

I would describe myself as unassuming. I'm the 4th of 5 kids, a Penn State grad, a U.S. Navy vet and an entrepreneur. I've been married since 2002 and just recently I turned fifty years old.

I've been writing fiction informally since I was ten years old. I've outlined and written down ideas for stories in several different genres. It is only as I've gotten older that I've tried to take a stab at actually writing in effort to get published.

I've written in a number of different fictional styles including retrospectives, faith based stories and humor. Right now my efforts are focused on world building in a military fantasy setting.

Dam' good start to something awesome. The story line and milieu are interesting without being cliche'. I am very interested to see how Malice and Stout - and Hari - develop!

Engaging plot and intriguing character development, all packed into a 20k story with a flowing, stylistic prose. Stout's adventure has only just begun, and I imagine this is a well-developed world we've only just caught a glimpse of as readers. Can't wait to see other installments in this interesting fantasy universe Eschbach has created. This is an author to watch, folks.
