About Michael C. Hughes

Raised in Battle Creek, Michigan, Michael had a successful career as a journalist and news editor before launching his own marketing/PR firm. Det. Ty Connell is a hybrid character based on police officers Michael has known well at city, state, and federal levels. He also counts as a reliable source a formerly active member of one of New York City's major crime families since retired from "the Life." In addition to the Ty Connell Series, Michael has written biographies of two colorful sports/media personalities, as well as a chronicle of events leading up to what were called "the Detroit Race Riots of 1967." That book, THE BURNING OF MURDER CITY USA, was a nominee for the 2018 Michigan Notable Book of the year. It is also available in eBook and paperback.

Nobody taught us this stuff in history class. Maybe they're afraid it will give us ideas. It's like another galaxy, and it's scary. This really happened like when my g-rents were teens? Now I want to know what else we don't know about the Sixties. Can't a gurl just be nozy? These four days of the collapse of Detroit are a real-life dystopia. They're not making this up.
