Author of the recently released series, “Thieves of Elysium,” Michael Alexander knows firsthand the life of an action hero.
Graduating at the top of his class, he served as a medic in the United States Air Force for eight years before leaving to become a fire fighter for a major metropolitan fire department. After ten years of fighting fires and emergency rescue, Michael left the department to pursue his lifelong passion for storytelling. Graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree with honors in Political Science, he went on to achieve a Master’s Degree in Diplomacy & International Conflict Management from Norwich University, the nation’s oldest private military college. Michael is currently a 32º Scottish Rite Freemason, A York Rite Knights Templar, and serves the fraternity as a Knight of Saint Andrew.
A hopeless romantic with an insatiable craving for adventure, Michael shares many of his experiences, real and imagined through storytelling. A graduate of The Acting Corp, he is prepared for film, television, and theater. He is also a graduate of ScreenwritingU specializing in Action/Adventure screenplays.
When he’s not at his desk writing he is often on the stage playing a knight in less than shining armor. His love for storytelling through writing and acting is built upon his colorful childhood, years of academic study, and real life adventures.
