Michael Tankle was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, although he spent most of the 80's in Wilkes-Barre, PA, where he met and married his wife, Charlotte, and had two daughters, Rachel and Heather.

Michael has had several careers, including sous chef at the prestigious Le Bec-Fin restaurant. He has also worked as a computer programmer, consultant, web designer and entrepreneur. He has held executive positions in the insurance and aerospace industries and was a guest on the old Mike Douglas Show.

"Paper Has No Eyes" is Michael's first fictional effort. He has previously published and presented papers at technical conferences as well as authoring a series of programming tutorials in professional computer magazines.

His interests include the performing arts, reading, writing, programming, web design and cooking. The Tankle family (including two cats and a dog) currently resides in Philadelphia, where Michael is working on his next book, the first part of a science fiction trilogy tentatively called ""King X."
