Michael McClung


Michael McClung was born in San Antonio, Texas, but now lives in Singapore. He's had a number of odd jobs over the years, including soldier, book store manager, and bowling alley pin boy, but the oddest by far is being a father.

His first book, the Sword & Sorcery novel "Thagoth," won the Del Rey Digital first novel competition in 2002 and was published by Random House in 2003. It has been re-released as 'The Thief Who Spat In Luck's Good Eye' and is available just about everywhere ebooks are sold.

In his spare time, Michael enjoys kickball, brooding and picking scabs.

Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
I'm currently finishing up the final edits on the third book in the Amra Thetys fantasy series. I'm also working on two other books; an old-school sword & sorcery tale(The Sword Monk Saga) and an epic fantasy series for the middle grade audience (Tarot Quest).

I'm the kind of writer that has literally dozens of projects started at any one time. Some never go anywhere. Some lie fallow for years, and then something sparks my creativity and the words just start flowing. I wish I were a more disciplined writer, and once a project reaches a critical mass, I am; but beginnings are always a bit flaky. Ideas are never a problem. Execution is the tricky bit.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Oh, I never have a problem getting out of bed. I'm an insomniac.
