VJ Books Presents Author Michael Koryta!

Author Michael KorytaMichael Koryta was born in 1982 in Bloomington, Indiana. As a child he loved to read, and to write letters to his favorite authors. By the time he was 16, he had already decided he wanted to write crime novels. He interned for a private investigator while in high school, and went on to study Criminal Justice at Indiana University. He wrote and published his first two novels while he was still in college, and his debut novel, Tonight I Said Goodbye won the St. Martin's Press/Private Eye Writers of America Best First Novel award.

Koryta has also worked as a reporter and as a teacher at the Indiana University School of Journalism. He is the author of the Marcus Novak series, the Lincoln Perry series, and a number of stand-alone novels. He has also written several screenplays, and indeed, many of his own books have been optioned for film or television.

When not writing, Koryta enjoys spending time in the great outdoors and pursuing "the never-ending quest for the world's best micro-brew." He currently divides his time between Bloomington, Indiana and St. Petersburg, Florida, and lives with his wife and their dog and cats.
