Michael Greywood
Author of A King's Burden


I am Michael and I will most often be found at work, reading comics, watching my favorite television shows (or if none of those currently hold my attention) I'll be found out in the woods, enjoying the simplicity of the world around me. 

I'm a poet, first and foremost, though I have an anthology of short stories which I was recently told by a few friends I should lengthen and publish elsewhere. So here I write. My poetry can be found at (which I am in the process of archiving and shutting down.)

My chosen genre is High Fantasy, where I frequently find my mind running away to. Magic, dragons, elves, adventure... they're all very close to my heart and my characters are based on the people I have met and interacted with throughout my life. 

If you're still reading and choose to follow any of my writings, thank you, and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed bringing my world to life.

The king of Selnor is on his deathbed, leaving his son, Prince Veigt, to lead in his stead until he can be formally crowned. Veigt's greatest challenge; the war between the mortal races and the dragons. As it was Veigt's great grandfather who initiated the conflict that quickly engulfed Selnor and the surrounding elven and dwarven nations, he feels it is his responsibility to bring a close to the seemingly endless war.

He has called upon his closest advisors from his elven allies in Highbough and the dwarves of Navrina to convene with him and the dragon elders, the Ancients. His goal is to reach an accord with the creatures in order to cease the fighting that has wrought death and destruction upon the land and all the races. To do so, he has a plan, one that would require the aid of the dragons and secrets that would have to be kept from history.

In Selnor, Veigt's wife and the future queen, Claire, works to maintain order and some semblance of peace in the country all while raising their children and preparing for the birth of their third. Her task of governing is becoming more and more difficult. Whispers of a rebellion against the would-be king and queen are brewing in the shadows, calling for continued war unto the eradication of all dragons. While her husband travels East to meet with the Ancients, Claire is left trying to rein in control of thier kingdom. 

The dragons eagerly await Veigt's arrival, hoping to find a peaceful solution and stop their looming extinction from becoming a reality. Unknown to Veigt, the dragons have their own terms prepared for the meeting. Terms which they are steadfast in holding the young king and his allies to.
