About Me

Michael W Lucas, April 2015


As Michael W Lucas I write tech books. As Michael Warren Lucas I write SF, thrillers, mysteries, romantic suspense, and a bunch of other stuff.

Once you walk into the twisted imagination of Michael Lucas, you really won’t want to leave… – Kristine Kathryn Rusch, multiple Hugo award winning author of The Retrieval Artist

Current projects

Terrapin Sky Tango (aka Butterfly Stomp Waltz #2) just escaped into the wild. Sudo Mastery 2nd Edition is in tech review. I’m currently writing SNMP Mastery, my next tech book, and writing an untitled novel that’s too young and delicate to discuss.

“One of the best technical writers in the networking and security environments.” – Midwest Book Review

Lucas is one of those rare writers who can make nail-biter action and gut-wrenching drama dance together and not have either stepping on the other’s toes. – Rob Cornell, author of Darker Things
