About this author

Michael Shean was born amongst the sleepy hills and coal mines of southern West Virginia in 1978. Taught to read by his parents at a very early age, he has had a great love of the written word since the very beginning of his life.

When I first picked up Jenn Lyons' debut work, I was very afraid that it might just be a little too much for me to read right now - after all, I'm in the middle of another novel myself, and a six-hundred-pager was bound to distract me. Nonetheless, I ...more

Michael Shean Hey, no trouble. I saw the other day that you had my book 'Bone Wires' under your 'Desperately Wanted' shelf. Which, you know, humbles me to see. :D If that's still the case, and you'd like to review it on your blog, I'd be happy to send you an ebook copy for you to read.

Also: Golden Book Bunny is Best Bunny. No doubt. :D


message 4: by Nenia

Nenia Campbell Oh! I read I Am a Bunny when I was a kid too. It was sooooo cute.

Thanks for the friend request!


Michael Shean Yep! Bone Wires is set for a concurrent print and digital release on 7.19 at the very least. Looking forward to seeing what you think of it.


message 2: by Chris

Chris Wanted to know is the new book was going to be a digital copy soon. I travel so carry books can be a little too much.


Sangr1a Thanks for your friendship, Michael! :)
