WELCOME to the online home of John Mierau (Rhymes with HERO!)

I’m a writer & storyteller–most often science fiction adventures starring strong characters. I’m renovating the site & my blog is offline but I interact with readers & listeners on social media & Patron. Sign up for the newsletter here.




I love telling stories, and I release a free story once a month via podcast (RSS here or click the picture for iTunes). Sometimes a standalone story, sometimes a scene from one of my books, or a ‘dvd bonus’ style piece. I tell stories in several story-verses & some recurring favorites sometimes pop up.




If you like my storytelling help me make more: become my patron. Patrons pick the rewards they want for helping me continue my writing, including serialized audiobook installments of novels, behind the scenes concept art, excerpts from works in progress, voting on stories I’ll write next and more.
