Mike Sledge

Mike grew up in South Texas but spent most of his time with his father's family in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where he learned a lifelong love of reading. He started writing fiction in his early 40s, before turning to military non-fiction in the early 2000s for Columbia University Press (Soldier Dead: How We Recover, Identify, Bury, and Honor Our Military Fallen). He went back to fiction in the magical realism and speculative fiction genres, using a future or fantasy world to illustrate the woes of society.
