About this author

Michael Offutt writes speculative fiction books that have science fiction, GLBT, and paranormal elements. His first book, "Slipstream" has received some critical acclaim and was published by Double Dragon in spring 2012. The sequel, "Oculus," was published in 2012. He has one brother, no pets, and a few roots that keep his tree of life sufficiently watered. By day, he works for the State of Utah as a Technical Specialist. By night, he watches lots of t.v., writes, draws, and sometimes dreams of chocolate.

Michael Offutt graduated from the University of Idaho in 1994 with a Bachelor's degree in English.

He keeps a blog and would appreciate a visit or two even if all you want to do is say hi.


May you have a great Thanksgiving, a fantastic Christmas, and a Happy New Year. Like I did last year, I'm signing off until January 2015. If you need to get a hold of me, you can contact me through twitter or email. Stay warm and drink lots of hot chocolate, and may you finish all of your books. Read more of this blog post »

I just finished Mermaid, and I absolutely loved it. As a story, there were echoes of Ariel, but with a much darker and definitely sadder outcome. This is my first go at a book with mermaids in it, and in my opinion Ms. O'Connor did several things rig ...more

“Vibrations caused by powerful turbines stirred Kathy from a dream centered around a funeral. Her eyes flicked open, face dry, and she had no idea where she was. In her dream, she saw crystalline silver spiders again, weaving their way through the graveyard, leaving trails of silver webs over corpses, binding them for some unknown purpose in the cold dark earth.”
