Mike was born in California and has lived in multiple states from the west coast to the east coast. He cannot remember a time when he wasn't reading a book. At school, home, on vacation, at work at lunch time, and yes even a few pages in the car (at times when he just couldn't put that great book down). Though he has read all sorts of genres he has always been drawn to fantasy. It is his way of escaping to a simpler time filled with magic, wonders and heroics of young men and women.

Traveling from Alaris to Mahli, Imari finds a forgotten barony, meets the Dragon King, and flies on a dragon, which is more adventure than Imari ever thought he would have as a relatively young and weak wizard.
