Michael was born in Mexico and raised in the United States. After receiving an honorable discharge from the United States Marine Corps, he enjoyed a successful career as a personal injury attorney. He is now retired and writes fiction full-time. Michael has been published in legal periodicals, but his true love is writing fiction. He’s been published in over thirty literary journals and magazines in the US, Canada, South America, and the UK. In his free time, he plays rhythm/lead guitar in a rock band, featuring 60’s and 70’s rock and roll.
In addition to his published novel, The Guadalupe Saints, Michael has completed several other manuscripts. One of those, The Pied Beauty of San Ignacio, is under active consideration for publication by Kensington Books (New York). In the meantime, he is polishing an additional manuscript, presently titled Titus of Galilee, to be sent out to potential publishers. You can find his latest anthology, Of Angels, Demons, and Chopped Chorizo, on Amazon.com.
