Michael Mammay is a Science Fiction and writer who currently tends toward military SF in his writing, but reads widely across the genre and probably has a rec for you. He works as an English Teacher, and before that, he used to do some other stuff. He can often be found working with developing writers in a number of different venues. He hates the idea of trying to name his top 5 favorite books so he named his favorite and a random sampling of four others he really enjoyed. He is represented by Lisa Rodgers of JABberwocky Literary.

His debut novel PLANETSIDE is coming in summer of 2018 from Harper Voyager.

For Pitch Wars 2017, Michael is co-mentoring with Dan Koboldt.
