Michael Merle Thomas was born in Nebraska but was raised and has lived in the Denver Colorado area since he was a month old. He was just 14 when Charles Manson and his cult of so called family members went on their killing spree, which began a lifelong fascination with the case. Michael has done extensive research on the Manson case, which has included a visit to the house where Sharon Tate and her guests were brutally murdered.
Michael is a Dale Carnegie graduate and an instructor of diesel engine technology. He is an avid reader and at some point would like to shift his focus to writing full time. He currently lives in a Denver suburb with his wife and two dogs. When not writing crime thrillers he relaxes at home reading or playing the piano or guitar.
