Michael Merriam was born in Michigan in 1965. He spent most of his life in west-central Oklahoma and north Texas before moving to Minnesota in 1999.

Like most writers, Michael has done a variety of odd jobs over the years: actor, poet, late night disc jockey, short order cook, bassist in a rock-a-billy band, and booking agent for a puppet troupe. Michael is legally blind due to retinitis pigmentosa.

Michael is Co-organizer and Convention Liaison for the Minnesota Speculative Fiction Writers, as well as a member of The Outer Alliance, Science Fiction Poetry Association, SteamPunk Artists and Writers Guild, and is a former member of the Online Writing Workshop.

Michael lives in Hopkins, Minnesota with his wife and two very exuberant cats.

The cats have invoked their 5th Amendment right in this matter.(less)

“We're all made of stories. When they finally put us underground, the stories are what will go on. Not forever, perhaps, but for a time. It's a kind of immortality, I suppose, bounded by limits, it's true, but then so's everything.”
Charles de Lint
