Michael Weintraub

Biography

I earned my B.A. in English/Writing from Hofstra University (1978) during which time I studied with then writer-in-residence Sam Toperoff (greatest influences: G.B.S. and Vonnegut) just love a good B&W swashbuckler and gumshoe film, and am hopelessly addicted to Brit-Coms. A chiropractor by training but actor by nature, I now teach Anatomy and Physiology at Pace University and Westchester, Bronx and Orange Community Colleges. My completed works include “Prince of the Caribbean” (© 2019 Smashwords) “The Shamus: A Gumshoe’s Odyssey” (Sci-Fi/Fantasy, © 2011 Smashwords)-- a dutiful retelling of Homer’s classic tale, “The Anatomy and Physiology Survival Kit” (Non-fiction, reference ©2012, 2017 Kendall Hunt Publishing), “A Million Lights For Joey” (TV Movie 90 minutes: Holiday/Family), how an eight-year-old Jewish girl from Queens tries to get one million Christmas lights on her house so an angel will bring her older brother home from the war in Viet Nam, and “Parables: A Tool for Self-Evolution” (New Age; self-published): channeled divination cards and readings.
