About the Author

Michael FitzGerald

I love my family, books and writing, horses and skiing, and now running. I graduated with a bachelors in English from BYU and have worked as a writer ever since. I started keeping a personal journal in 1976 and accidentally wrote over 7,000 pages. I'm also the author of over twenty books in several genres, most recently a New Young Adult fantasy set in the contemporary West, Song of Falling Leaves. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I served as a missionary in Ohio and recently as a bishop. My wife Cristi and I married in the Manti Temple in 1979, and we have three daughters and four grandsons.
