About the author.
Michael Alan Nelson was born and raised in a small Indiana farming community just beyond the farthest reaches of the Chicogland area. After earning a Bachelor's Degree in English Education from Indiana State University and a short stint teaching teenagers parts of speech (followed by an even shorter stint selling guitars in Buffalo, NY), he moved to Los Angeles where he began writing comics for BOOM! Studios.
Michael has written such critically acclaimed titles as Fall of Cthulhu, Hexed, and 28Days Later, as well as had multiple collaborations with noted Hollywood producers, directors, and actors. He is the winner of the 2004 New Times 55 Fiction contest for his short-short "The Conspirators" and was awarded the 2011 Glyph Comics Award for Best Female Character for the character Selena from his series "28 Days Later." Michael's first prose novel Hexed: The Sisters of Witchdown is available from Pyr, an imprint of Prometheus Books.
