Is the Canadian-born author of Dark Side of the Sun, The Leaf Cutter and The Corduroy Road, well-received and much-loved books that have garnered regional and national media attention across Canada. And he loves a good adventure - he was temporarily stranded on an iceberg once, was accidently branded an illegal alien (along with his wife and kids) in Panama and his family lived in the jungles of Central America for a year. In his other life, he's an avid history and music buff with serious addictions to chocolate and The Beatles. Michael currently resides in Calgary, Alberta, with his wife and three children.
