Born in Springfield, Ohio, Elgon Williams grew up on a farm near the town of South Charleston and the village of Selma in rural southeastern Clark County, "...about two miles from nowhere and between cornfields."


Williams graduated from Shawnee High School in 1974. In the fall of that year he began studies at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, receiving a BA in Mass Communication in 1978. Later, in 1981 he received a degree in Marketing Administration from The University of Texas in Austin. In 1983 he joined the US Air Force and attended the Defense Language Institute at the Presidio of Monterey in California where he studied Chinese Mandarin.


Upon completion of military training he spent two years in the Asia. Shortly after returning to the US, Williams left the military and began a long career in management working for several major retailers. Periodically, he also served as a vendor advocate for a national marketing firm representing many computer technology and software companies in retail outlets. He has also worked in advertising, sales and as a computer technician and technology consultant. Although his early writing is considered sci-fi and fantasy, it is difficult to classify his work as any single genre. His most recent publications, Fried Windows (In a Light White Sauce) and Becoming Thuperman, blend urban fantasy and science fiction.


Fried Windows: In A Light White Sauce

Whimsy and darkness, all in one very odd story...

In the tradition of Asimov, Heinlein, H.G. Wells, and Lewis Carroll; Elgon Williams has created a universe where imagination rules and reality is not what it seems.


Leave your world behind and enter an adventure forever lost but never forgotten. Where only magic is real, and anything is possible...

Becoming Thuperman

Two kids. Superpowers. Witchery. Time to shine a light through the darkness.

Little is normal about Will and Sandra, except the name of the Illinois town where they live. The two precocious eight-year-olds share overactive imaginations, a love of baseball and genuine affection for each other. Oh yeah…and they are both budding superheroes.
