Vincent M. Wales has worn many hats over the years, including writing instructor, essayist, Big Brother, freethought activist, wannabe rock star, and award-winning novelist. He has also been a suicide prevention crisis counselor and co-host of The Psych Central Show, a weekly podcast on psychology and mental health.

His books fall under the umbrella of “speculative fiction,” including fantasy, dystopian future, and superhero memoirs.

He spends most of his writing time in coffee shops, since his cats fail to grasp the entire concept of “writing time.”
