About Mike Watson
I've always written fiction but didn't have an opportunity to devote time to it until just a few years ago. I had twenty years experience writing technical documents, but, I soon discovered that writing fiction is vastly different from writing nonfiction.
"The Beacon at Barrington Light" was my first indie release. All my previous sales had been through traditional channels. My novel, Emigre, was released on April 10, 2020. on Amazon.
Subsequent to "Émigré," Ivel be released a collection of short stories, including a novella, based in the same Tri Cluster Confederacy universe. The collection, titled "Dundee Orbitall," was released at the end of July 2020.

When Fabien Loche arrives in the Confederation as SolSystem's newest Liaison, his government believes he's a broken man sent into exile. But the new job, and the new culture, are far more strange and welcoming than either had anticipated. With the help of the local Chief Inspector, and his headstrong niece Molly, Loche plunges headlong into exploring and learning everything on the station above and world below.
More is riding on his assimilation than his future. He's also the vanguard of the spaceborne Houses of SolSystem, who are preparing to flee the reach of an increasingly unstable and aggressive Earth. But the Confederation is far more fragmented and factioned than he expected. The scramble to control the highly advanced technology that the Houses will bring, and the fear of losing it, may be the wedge that drives Confederation and Sol System alike into war...
"Reminds me a bit of David Weber, but the action is busily happening without the endless exposition. I look forward to more." -- Lane D.
"Once again I am very well impressed with Mike Watson and his storytelling ability. His unique approach and story line provide a wonderful look into another time and society and I quickly became immersed in the story without being burdened by unnecessary asides or details not pertinent to the journey.
I highly recommend this book and this author to one and all." -- DanT
