Mike Winkler


An engineer by day, Mike Winkler spends his free time creating new universes, imagining “alternities,” and crafting truly original characters. His adventures are large-scale and centered on human relationships, even if the characters are very tall lizard men, immortal warriors, or ultimate weapons at the end of time.

When not constructing stories, he’s building solar power systems, practicing yoga, chowing down on a hamburger while surrounded by vegetarians, or off playing games with Meg. His writing portfolio includes a variety of fiction and technical works.

Mike has been photographed with the likes of fellow author and partner Meg Winkler, various people in costume, and the Rosetta Stone. If he could meet any person, living or dead, he’d travel back in time to meet Winston Churchill on his worst day.
