It was at the tender age of 7 that an interconnection of cells and organs called Mike Robinson (then Mikey) penned, or pencilled, his first story. Called "Aliens In My Backyard!", it went on to become a runaway bestseller, topping international charts (or maybe that just happened in his imagination, too).
Although he has since worked as an independent videogame producer and cinematographer, writing has always been the focal point of his creative life, although to him the phrase "creative life" sounds a tad redundant. His first professional sale, a short story entitled "The Hand of Spudd", appeared in Storyteller Magazine when he was 19. Since then, his work has appeared in a dozen magazines, anthologies and podcasts. In 2006, he was one of five guys comprising GLAWS, the Greater L.A. Writers Society, which has since become the second largest writers' group in Southern California. He's the editor of Literary Landscapes, the society's publication.
Skunk Ape Semester, his debut novel, was released early 2012 by Solstice Publishing, and a Finalist in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards.
Subsequently, Curiosity Quills Press published his supernatural-mystery novel The Green-Eyed Monster, the surreal, character-oriented thriller Negative Space (both titles are part of the loose trilogy The Enigma of Twilight Falls), the existential horror The Prince of Earth, and the most recent release, Too Much Dark Matter, Too Little Gray: A Collection of Weird Fiction. He is also the co-author of Hurakan's Chalice, #3 in Aiden James' bestselling series The Talisman Chronicles.
In early 2015, Muse Harbor Publishing will be releasing his literary novel The Atheist, about a celebrity secular pundit who undergoes a near-death experience.
