All the crazy comes from me. And yet I'm a perfectly nice guy in real life. I don't commit more than one gruesome murder per year.

—Michael Grant about the craziness in the series[1]

Michael Grant (born July 26, 1954, and currently 64 years old) is the author of the Gone Series. He has written over 160 books, though most are as a co-author with his wife.[2]

Grant was raised in a military family, attending ten schools in five states, as well as three schools in France. As an adult, he became a writer in part because "it was one of the few jobs that wouldn't tie him down to a specific location". He has lived in almost 50 homes in 14 states.[3] He currently resides in Southern California with his wife Katherine, and his two children.
