Michael Sliter was born in the deep wilds of Cleveland, Ohio, where he fought off at least two siblings for scraps of pizza. His bedroom, growing up, was a monument to fantasy, containing a stack of worn and well-read books, a medieval Lego civilization spanning half the room, and a very real sword circa World War II.

Though always fascinated with the written word, Michael ended up with only a minor in writing, instead majoring in Psychology (Hiram College, OH). He later went on to complete his M.S. and Ph.D. in Industrial-Organizational Psychology (Bowling Green State University, OH)—overall spending a larger portion of his life than strictly necessary in school.

I think with time being so slim for writing, when I have a chance to write, I've already figured out where I want to go. I think about the story when I drive, exercise, or do chores.

The other thing is that, if I'm not sure where to go, I just... keep writing. One of my English teachers wrote, every day on the board, that "Writing is mind travel, destination unknown." As cheesy as it seemed at the time, part of the fun is letting the story unfold. For instance, in Wisdom Lost, I had planned one ending for a main POV character. While writing the last chapter, I found it went in a very different direction. It became organic and natural. And fun!(less)
