Michael Bowler grew up in San Rafael, California. He attended St. Raphael's School and Marin Catholic High School before attending Santa Clara University. He was an avid fan of “Dark Shadows” as a child (featured in ‘A Boy and His Dragon’), despite parental disapproval and was forced to watch the show in secret. Likewise, Titanic and her tragic fate fascinated him for as far back as he could remember. He has a vast collection of artwork, memorabilia and virtually every book ever written about the Titanic disaster.
He majored in English and Theatre at Santa Clara and got a master’s in film production from Loyola Marymount University. He partnered with two friends as producer, writer, and/or director on several films, most notably “Fatal Images,” “Dead Girls,” “Hell Spa” (later re-edited and titled “Club Dead”), “Things” and “Things II.”
He has written a number of unproduced screenplays and is currently working on other novels he has outlined. He's been teaching high school in Hawthorne, California for over twenty years.
He has also been a volunteer Big Brother to seven different boys over 30 years with the Catholic Big Brothers Big Sisters program and a volunteer within the juvenile justice system in Los Angeles for 29 years. He is a passionate advocate for the fair treatment of children and teens in California, something that is sorely lacking in that state.
”A Boy and His Dragon” was originally written in the 1980’s before fantasy stories enjoyed a major renaissance. It is intended as the first of a trilogy.
"A Matter of Time, " a Silver Medal Winner from Reader’s Favorite, was published in 2012.
“Children of the Knight” will be published in the summer of 2013 by Harmony Ink Press. It is the first of a trilogy.
