Our next Guest of Honor needs no introduction. Noted walking signature machine, occasional episode writer, and novel author M. A. Larson will be returning to Nightmare Nights for the fourth time! He joins fellow writer G. M. Berrow as one of the only Guests of Honor to attend four times. We’re so excited to welcome M. A. Larson back, as I assume are the hotel bartenders.

M. A. Larson has written for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic since the start of the show, responsible for episodes like Swarm of the CenturySonic RainboomLuna Eclipsed, and that one where Twilight Sparkle got wings. He took over as story editor for the first half of season 5. He’s also written extensively for Littlest Pet Shop, and contributed to other shows such as Gravity Falls and My Gym Partner’s a Monkey. Mitch is currently finishing work on The Warrior Princess of Pennyroyal Academy, the third novel in his Pennyroyal Academy book series. You can find him anywhere there’s an empty surface for his signature, or yelling at Foal Papers on Twitter.
