Who is Michael La Ronn?
Who I am: Michael La Ronn, science fiction & fantasy author at your service. I write about underdogs, and my fiction is hopelessly optimistic.
Why you should care: I’m a writer because I almost died.
My Story: In 2012 my wife and I went out to dinner. I fell ill with food poisoning the next day.
I was in the hospital for a month. Turns out it was deadly.
Seriously, it sucked. But I’m OK now.
I swore right then and there on my hospital bed that I would succeed as a writer no matter what—and that I would bend the universe around me if I had to.
I swore that I would right the best science fiction & fantasy that I could, and most importantly, I would be myself. You can call my books a lot of things, but you can’t call them unoriginal. Not by a long shot.
That’s why I call my books “Fearless.” Because it takes a lot of guts and courage to be an author and write the kind of stories I do.
And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
