About

Luke Wildman may be a figment of your imagination—or you may be one of his.

Either way, he’s a writer of fantasy and other weird fiction, who spends far too much time working on his novels. Born and raised in West Africa, he moved to the U.S. at nineteen, and now lives with his wife in Indianapolis.

To date he’s written four novels and countless short stories, one of which will be published with a second place win in the upcoming Writers of the Future Vol. 37. Other publications include Havok magazine and Parnassus.

Luke has dreamed of being a published author since he began writing his first novel in fifth grade (it ended up at over 200k words). He intends to keep writing until the day Old Grim gets him.

This site is designed to let readers walk along the road with him, observing his journey to publication in real-time. Triumphs, pitfalls, and perplexities included.
