An award-winning writer and professor, Michael Livingston holds degrees in History, Medieval Studies, and English.

In his life as an academic, he is an Associate Professor of English at The Citadel. He specializes in the Middle Ages, but he’s published on a range of subjects from the 1st to the 21st centuries.

In his life as an author, he has published in a variety of genres and venues: from a retelling of Beowulf to a story about quantum physics in the world-renowned journal of science, Nature. His first novel, Shards of Heaven, is due out from Tor Books in late 2015.

He grew up across the West, wanting few things more than to write and teach. Today he lives in Charleston, South Carolina.
