Author, Michael Just writes book-length fiction and nonfiction as well as short stories and essays. His most recent work, Canyon Calls, represents a first of its kind – a collection of short stories set in the Grand Canyon. His fiction focuses on the genres of mainstream contemporary, mystery/suspense, science fiction and fantasy. His nonfiction, including a book of essays entitled The Accidental Naturalist, focuses on nature and inspirational themes. To puncture his ego and keep his work from becoming pretentious, he injects a lot of humor into his writing, fiction and nonfiction alike. Michael informs his writing with a wide range of professional and personal experience, including the former practice of law and the current practice of psychotherapy. He has also served as adjunct professor at National Louis University in Chicago and acted in film and theatre. He is a rabid hiker and a chronicler of personal misadventure in the backcountry. Mike travels extensively throughout the American West, with an emphasis on the canyon country of the Southwest. He maintains his existence somewhere west of the San Juan Range on the edge of the Colorado Plateau.
