S. Michael Wilson was born in Rochester, New York, and raised in New Jersey, where the weak are killed and eaten. He is now in his mid-thirties and resides in Phillipsburg, New Jersey, which is intentionally within fleeing distance from Pennsylvania.
He has held a number of jobs throughout his life. Starting out as a stock boy at the now-defunct Woolworth's, he went on to manage a comic book store, sort mail at the United States Postal Service, run the projection booths at various movie theaters throughout New Jersey, test underground fuel tanks, act as production assistant at two Miss America Pageants and the 1994 Presidential Gala at Ford's Theater, and fill the role of Backroom Team Lead at Target. Up until recently, he was a senior associate at The Light House, a film & television sound stage and lighting rental house based out of Central New Jersey, where he had worked for the past 15 years. Now, along with over ten percent of the US population, he is currently 'between gigs'.
During all of these jobs, throughout all of the years, he wrote.
In the early 90's, he published an underground humor zine, The Mongoloid Moose, which gained a small but loyal fanbase through it's thirty-six issue run. Since then, he has worked in various writing formats; short stories, screenplays, book and movie reviews, and he has even tried his hand at blogging. He has attempted poetry twice, and has since been told that there should never be a third attempt.
Most recently, he was approached by Idea Men Publications (IMP). Having dealt mainly with true-crime, IMP was looking to branch out into other forms of popular entertainment, and asked him to collaborate on some books with horror and science fiction films as the major theme. The first product of this collaboration, Monster Rally, which S. Michael Wilson both edited and contributed to, was released at the end of 2008. Other IMP projects have been released since then.
On top of his work with IMP, S. Michael Wilson has several projects in the works. Among these are a book dedicated to bad movies, a future series of audio commentaries, and a collection of articles from his humor zine, The Mongoloid Moose. Negotiations are also in the works regarding the production of a screenplay co-written with Charles Rowe.
S. Michael Wilson almost never talks in third-person, but will do so when provoked.
