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. Growing up, he was often plagued with feelings of isolation and loneliness; he began writing off and on to help deflect this, though these themes are often explored in his work as a consequence.

Sangria Thanks for your friendship, Michael! :)


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.


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.


Nenia *Readasaurus Reviews* 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 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
