About Michael


I write queer-themed speculative fiction celebrating the unexpected ways we outsiders find ourselves and our people at the heart of the mysterious and the macabre. I’m a member of HWA and SFWA and am on the NC Writers Network Board of Trustees.

I also co-host Arcane Carolinas, an award-winning podcast about the myths and legends of my native region, studied Performance Studies at UNC Chapel Hill and Appalachian Studies at Appalachian State, and am a brother in both Mu Beta Psi and St. Anthony Hall.

    1. I am so grateful for this comment! I love Lillie’s story so much. She’s become one of my absolute favorite people from the city’s history. If you’ll email me at michaelgwilliams at gmail dot com, I would love to mail you a copy of the book when it comes out!
