William Hatfield was born in a small town in northern Michigan and attended Western Michigan University, getting a degree in history and communications. Musical engagements led him to Gainesville, Florida, where he continues to live with his wife Karen and their two feline daughters.
Rumor has it, he may have grown up, but it seems unlikely.
Rumor also has it that on the convention circuit, no piano is safe from his inclination to cause spontaneous piano bar singalongs.
Tough Crowd is the third book in his science fiction series, Fists of Earth, following the initial Captive Audience and sequel Duel Roles.
William has also written Menu for Murder, which tells the stories of three newcomers to Key West, trying to scratch out a living, even as two of them come to terms with their lifestyle. It is a quirky novel of murder and mischief that will make you laugh out loud. Blown Choices is the sequel that puts Tess, Nathan, and Tuesday through their first serious Key West hurricane season. And it's a real killer.
Key Notes is a collection of short stories spanning genres and the decades of his life as an aspiring and perspiring writer.
