Mj Grothoff


Mj Grothoff resides in St. Louis, Mo where I live with my beautiful wife, wonderful children and their “to-smart-for-his-own-good” lab Strider (yes Strider as in Lord of the Rings; we are this nerdy). I started writing short stories at a young age on my blue and gray typewriter (I said TYPEWRITER…..I will end it there) for my D&D group (yep I was rejecting dating requests left and right from the girls) and loved creating these imaginary places. I continued this trend through my many years in the United States Navy where it allowed me to pass the time out at sea or located in a foreign land. It served me well many days.

I have built a Fantasy world where I allow my free thought to discover what this world has in store and I ink it onto paper. I have completed two of these novels (EverWing and Vanished; part of “The Saga of EverWing” series) and currently working the third. This adventure has led me to become a Creative Writer for a Gaming Studio where I get to throw my ideas around XBOX and PC gaming. It is an unexpected joy. I am always in search for a new challenge willing to push my writing onto a blank sheet.

Happy Reading!
