About

mikeI’m Michael Alden, and welcome to Alden Writes, a blog dedicated to my own adventure into fiction writing.

I grew up in coastal North Carolina, and moved to Charlotte in 2007 to attend college.  I received my bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2011. I’m currently a project engineer at an industrial automation firm, and live in Cornelius, NC.

Inspired by my favorite Sci-Fi authors (Asimov, Herbert, Card and Scalzi – to name a few), I decided to combine my love of writing with the subject matter that I love to read about most. I made the early decision to serialize my work here on this blog so that friends, family and anyone else can see what I’m working on. I’m open to any constructive feedback and would appreciate your thoughts on the writing as it progresses.
