Michael Walker is a Los Angeles-based screenwriter, author and journalist.

His first book, LAUREL CANYON: THE INSIDE STORY OF ROCK AND ROLL'S LEGENDARY NEIGHBORHOOD (Farrar Straus & Giroux), spent seven months on the Los Angeles Times Book Review nonfiction bestseller list, is in its 16h printing and continues to receive worldwide acclaim. “A winding, inviting...portrait of a bohemian quarter that played a prominent role in the foundation of rock music,” the New York Times wrote in its review.

WHAT YOU WANT IS IN THE LIMO (Spiegel & Grau/Random House, 2013), was praised by Rolling Stone as “a reminder of why the world would eventually need punk rock.” Film rights were purchased by Johnny Depp’s Infinitum Nihil productions.
