About Me

M. Pax, that's me, and I am the author of the space opera adventure series, The Backworlds, and the fantasy/steampunk series, The Rifters. Fantasy, science fiction, and the weird beckon to me. I blame Oregon, a source of endless inspiration. I sometimes docent at Pine Mountain Observatory in the summers as a star guide and enjoy exploring the quirky corners of Oregon. Find out more at

Inspired by Imagination

Since I could think, I've dreamed up stories. Anything can be looked at from a perspective of wonder. Just for fun, here's something I wrote inspired by a poster I had in my room as a kid. It was one of those black velvet posters from Spencer's Gifts with Pegasus flying through space. I spent hours staring at it and imagining myself flying through the stars. I write that wonder into every story.
