Mike Cyrus

Biography

Following his love of the outdoors after high school in West Virginia led Mike Cyrus to the University of Montana, where he worked his way through school parachuting out of airplanes, and leading ground crews to combat wildfires throughout the US. In all that time, Mike never missed hunting seasons and practicing his religion of floating and fly fishing Montana's great Blue Ribbon trout streams. After 17 years of fighting wildfires, and owning several businesses, he took up cattle ranching. Now retired from ranch life, he lives mostly in a remote internet challenged village in Panama with his wife, Rosa, and their two children, Dixie and Dusty, where he actively fishes, snorkels, and scuba dives the blue Caribbean waters beside his home. Mike lost his first son, Chad Hunter Cyrus, when his Super Cub plummeted to the ground after encountering a microburst near Miles City, Montana, August 18, 2011. A self described Hemingway-ish adventurer who made his own way, Mike takes pride in his independence, rugged individualism, and 50 years of bigger than life experiences from the wilds of Northern Alaska to Tierra del Fuego. He says that he has finally slowed down a little and spends full time with his family and wholeheartedly enjoys preparing his children for a joyful, untroubled, meritorious life, while beginning to fulfill his lifelong dream of writing novels. The Kingdom Come is the first of three, which will be interspersed with a series of short stories already written ‘along the trail.’ Look for ‘Tall Tree Chronicles, Rip-Roaring Outdoor Escapades,’ Parts 1 & 2, coming soon.
