A little about the author
M. C. Gladd's mother, Nanci, encouraged a love of reading in him early, reading to him daily before he could even read himself. He soon picked up the habit and spent endless hours as a child, lost in the wonderous worlds only a good book can provide.
As a kid he gravitated toward Sci-Fi, fantasy, and adventure, eating up anything that could whisk him away. Some of his favorites were the "Conan the Barbarian" stories by Robert E. Howard, "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain, "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings" by J. R. R. Tolkien, anything by Ben Bova, Robert Silverberg, and many many others.
He spent twenty-two years in the Army. He has a wife of almost thirty years and two great grown kids and a few years of college under his belt in a couple of different majors. Now he wants to fulfill a lifelong ambition to tell stories himself. The same kind of escapist tales he used to, (and still does), get lost in.
