Michael Robert is an aficionado of rainbows, unicorns, and things that are dark and terrible. An author of speculative fiction, he hails from the rainswept Convergence Zone of the Pacific Northwest where he lives with his spouse, two children, and entirely too many cats. He has a head filled with a nigh-encyclopedic recall of 80’s cartoons, a mountain of unread books crammed into a Kindle, and a garage filled with little toy robots. His short story, "Only Okay at Bad", is the featured story in the forthcoming Don’t Be a Hero: A VILLAINthology, due later this fall. You can call him Mike Bob Squarepants at your own dire peril and ignore him on Twitter at @WordsOfRobert.
