It’s #RIAuthor Month! Meet Mike Squatrito



Your name is Harrison Cross.  You’re a righteous warrior with an undying will to avenge your parent’s death and the power to reunite humanity.  However, every step along your journey is met with obstacles – people stealing your prized possessions, the Scynthians, a marauding species of ogre-like beings that want to eradicate your race, the ruthless Lord Hammer of Concur and his menacing army, and a land filled with creatures that hinder your progress – but you persevere.  Along the way you’re beaten, punished, and mocked for your beliefs, you witness friends dying, you’re hungry and tired, yet you persevere.  Your will is your asset, both a blessing and a curse.  People you meet admire you and want to help with your cause; they become friends for life.  Others want to tear you down.  You possess God-given physical skills that are tested each and every day.  You must not only fight to stay alive, but think as well.  And think you do.  Your friends are your rock and you will never betray them.  It’s not in your nature.  You meet the love of your life and you will protect her forever.  You gladly place the burden of the world on your shoulders and carry everyone with you.  You persevere, the word quit not in your vocabulary.  In the end, the result of your life is a simple outcome.  Either you win or you die.  Intrigued?

The Overlords: Legend of the Treasure is the first book in my Overlords fantasy series.  The Overlords: The Talisman of Unification and The Overlords: Journey to Salvation, the second and third books in the series respectively, are also available, and I’m working on the fourth installment as we speak. If you liked the intro then visit my webpage,, for more information about me and my projects.

You can purchase paperback or eBook versions directly from  Amazon


Mike has been writing The Overlords series for over twenty years. Currently, he lives in Tiverton, RI with his wife Lea, and their children, Devin and Samantha. Mike speaks at middle and high schools, colleges, local libraries, and writers’ groups where his sincere hope is to inspire everyone he meets to be creative and follow their dreams. He also is the vice president of the Association of Rhode Island Authors (ARIA).

When not working on the Overlords series, Mike is very active in fitness and sports. He continues to play baseball where he is a knuckleball pitcher for the Narragansett Brewers that won the 2008 and 2014 National Championships in Phoenix, AZ. He also runs 4 to 5 miles on a regular basis, does interval weight and cardio training, and takes Vinyasa yoga classes twice a week. Did we mention that he is an engineer, too, working on Homeland Defense projects?

Meet over 100 local authors on Saturday, December 2! The Fifth Annual RI Authors Expo
