Born and raised in the Southeastern United States, J.M. Williamson has always been an avid fan of fantasy in its many forms. He developed a love for writing, myths and fantasy lore at an early age; as a result, he wrote and fleshed out many stories to hone his skills throughout the years. His training mainly came from observation of other authors and entertainment media, as well as formal training in the development of video games and their plotlines. The Dracus Saga combines Williamson’s love of fantasy and history with some of the more outlandish features of comics and manga to create a style of writing and fantasy storytelling unique to him.
