MICHAEL DAVID ARES is an entrepreneur and educator who started four community service businesses while writing and editing books for other people on the side. He is now a full-time author, and lives with his family in West Chester, Pennsylvania.

He has also enjoyed science fiction with a psychological bent, like the works of Alfred Bester and Philip K. Dick
