About Michael B Hinton (Baton Rouge, Louisiana Author)
Michael B. Hinton was born and raised in a small town in rural Louisiana, and spent many of his childhood weekends raiding his father’s sci-fi paperback collection. He worked for a while at a small daily newspaper, where he learned the importance of missing deadlines and of taking lunch away from the office.
To avoid finding real work, Michael made his living in politics and government for more than a decade before settling down to write a book. He lives with his two cats, Zephyr and Yin-Ying, and enjoys telling kids to get off his lawn.
