About Michael

Michael Hodges is an American speculative fiction writer. His debut novel, The Puller, was released on April 24, 2015. Film rights for The Puller were purchased by Sonny Mallhi, producer of the horror classic The Strangers. Foreign publishing rights were purchased by Luzifer Verlag, and The Puller was translated and released in Germany. His latest novel is The Invasive 2: Remnants, a science fiction novel about alien ecosystem replacement in Montana. The Invasive is an Amazon best-seller, and audio rights were purchased by Tantor Media. Michael’s short stories have been published in over twenty magazines and anthologies, and he’s a member of the Horror Writers Association and the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America.

He’s also taught a writing panel with Game of Thrones editor Anne Groell.

Along with writing fiction, Hodges is a professional nature photographer, with work appearing in Outside Magazine (Best Adventure Photography of the Year) and newspapers, amongst other places. Animals often play a big role in his fiction, and the two art forms feed each other.
