Veteran entertainment journalist Michael Beaulieu’s first novel Reckoning Daze was #1 on Amazon’s best-selling satire chart. Like the book’s protagonist, it was written when Michael was an anorexic living in Los Angeles himself. More recently, Michael published the first two volumes of his young adult, urban fantasy series Book of Shadows. It’s the story of three 16-year-old girls who form a coven after finding the lead character’s late great-grandmother’s spell book, also known as a book of shadows. Michael again drew from personal experience in writing Book of Shadows, being that he’s a Wiccan residing in the book’s Massachusetts setting. Unlike most fantasy books, the spells in Book of Shadows are all inspired by modern-day witchcraft, making the book that much more believable. Aside from writing books, Michael regularly interviews rock stars and authors for his pop culture site Love is Pop, www.loveispop.com. Currently, Michael is polishing Book of Shadows: Volume 3: Hunting.
