Quan Williams was born and raised in Flint, MI, and has always had a love for stories. He honed his writing craft at the University of Michigan, where he studied creative writing under the tutelage of novelists Jonis Agee (Strange Angels, South of Resurrection) and Tish O’Dowd Ezekiel (Floaters). He also found time to write and illustrate three comic books and work as an entertainment journalist for the Michigan Daily Newspaper for three years.
Since graduating, Quan has jumped at every opportunity to bring his wild ideas to life. He wrote the short story “That Weird Kid” which was published by the web magazine Storiesthatlift.com, before writing the young adult novel The Leopard Man. He wrote and illustrated two webcomics, one of which (The Seizure) was collected and published as a trade paperback. He also wrote the business/family melodrama Double Entry.
When he is not creating, he enjoys the company of his loved ones, whether it be playing Monopoly with his wife, or playing Magic: the Gathering with his brother, or talking about the craft of writing with his Godsister, or discussing comic books, sports and pro wrestling with friends. He loves working with children, and strives to teach them and encourage them to express themselves creatively and pursue their dreams, no matter how far-fetched others might think they are.
