Gary W. Olson grew up in Michigan and, despite the weather, stuck around. In 1991 he graduated from Central Michigan University and went to work as a software engineer. He loves to read and write stories that transgress the boundaries of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, while examining ideas of identity and its loss in the many forms it can have. Away from working and writing, Gary enjoys spending time with his wife, their cats, and their mostly reputable family and friends.
Gary's first novel, BRUTAL LIGHT, was published on December 1st, 2011 by Damnation Books. Prior to this, Gary had several short stories published in small press venues. He is currently working on more stories, the sequel to BRUTAL LIGHT, and THE MORPHEIST, a science fiction biopunk novella.
