Michael Hiebert

Biography

I am an award-winning author of novels and short stories. My latest book, Dream With Little Angels is being published by Kensington Books and should be on shelves in the spring of 2013.

I live in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, Canada, where it’s cold and wet in the winter and warm (and sometimes also wet) in the summer. We have cougars, and bears and deer. I have a dog named Chloe, three kids, and enough books that it became no fun to move quite a long time ago.

I like to write surprising stories that cross genres, and are often mysterious. I’ve been writing most of my life, but I’ve really spent the last decade perfecting my craft.

My writing seems to be a blend of mystery and the fantastic. I like to find the redemption in the horrific; the surviving heart still left beating among all the sorrow; the beautiful lost somewhere in all the ugliness of the world.

I won the prestigious Surrey International Writer’s Conference Storyteller’s Award twice in a row. This award is sponsored each year by New York Times bestseller Diana Gabaldon and bestseller Jack Whyte.
