Mike Saxton grew up in Vernon, CT. He attended Eastern Connecticut State University starting in 1996. He became a Resident Assistant starting his Sophomore year. The following year, he met and started dating Amy, and the two would be married after graduation. Mike earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from Eastern and following graduation, he was hired full time as a Residence Hall Director and subsequently earned his Master of Science degree in Organizational Management. His son, Christopher was born two weeks after completing his comprehensive exams for his Master’s degree. He lives with his wife, son, and two cats Padme and Obi-Wan.
His first book, 7 Scorpions: Rebellion is the first of a trilogy (book 2 is Revolution and book 3 is Retribution). Mike was inspired by four years of lucid dreaming that began the summer prior to his Junior year of High School and concluded during the summer after his Sophomore year of college. After spending eleven years compiling the dreams and making sense of them, he gained the sudden inspiration to finally start writing them in novel format.
Mike had decided that he wanted to become a writer during his time of lucid dreaming. Life became busy and he shelved the desire for a while but finally got into it. He is hoping to one day be able to write full time. He finds it therapeutic, relaxing, and exciting when he can create whole science fiction and fantasy worlds. He is also pursuing his PhD in Organization and Management.
In a world torn apart by a ruthless dictator, humanity is enslaved and on the verge of extinction. The governments have fallen. The cities lie in ruin. The only hope is a man who has been in exile for over a year.
