Mike Chinakos

A self-proclaimed Metal Maniac and lover of Horror, Sci-Fi and Fantasy, Mike is the author of Hollywood Cowboys, Kiss of the Traitor, Dead Town, Terminal Horizons, Grim Highways, When the Lightning Strikes, Exiles in Time, Tales of the Ten Realms and numerous short stories. A proud father of two, he lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. He is hard at work on the final Hollywood Cowboys novel, Season of the Dead.

Mike is the past president and co-founder of the Northwest Independent Writers Association.

If you ask Mike what he thinks the most important things in life are, he'll more than likely give you a smart-ass reply like, "Cigars and whiskey." But then with a smile on his face he'll tell you the truth, "Family, friends, loved ones and writing."  Although cigars and whiskey do come in a close second!
