Micah Hyatt began writing novels and short stories at the age of sixteen. It would be over a decade before he wrote anything worth reading. To pay the bills, he found work as a train conductor, a soldier, a hay baler, a dishwasher, a railroad safety liaison, and many other mundane jobs. Through it all, he never stopped writing.
His favourite books are those that take him to fantastic new places, and show underdogs overcoming their difficulties.
