Hello, I'm Michael Tinker Pearce. I'm a full time professional knife and sword maker who has recently turned/returned to writing fiction with my wife Linda Pearce. I was consulting on the Mongoliad/Foreworld project and when they circulated a request for Foreworld Novellas Linda and I decided to give it a go. Our first Foreworld novella, "The Shield Maiden," was published by 47 North last November.

About twenty years ago I wrote some short fiction, some of which sold. Since then I have been writing primarily non-fiction, much of it related to my profession or other interests such as cooking, classic cars, firearms etc. This included a book on medieval european swords that has been quite successful.

We're currently finishing up our first novel, a heroic fantasy, which we plan to self-publish in February (knock-on-wood!) This is part of a four-book series, so keeping momentum up will be important...

In addition to being very knowledgable about swords and other edged weapons I am a student of Historic European Martial Arts, both armed and unarmed. I am also a former Combat Pistol competitor and am very familiar with modern firearms and am happy to consult on these subjects if people need information.
