Dr. Michael J. Deeb was born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan. His undergraduate education was completed at Aquinas College. He earned a Master’s degree from Michigan State University and a Doctorate from Wayne State University. He was an educator for nineteen years, most of which saw him teaching American history.
His personal life found him as a pre-teen spending after-school time afternoons at the Grand Rapids Public Library waiting for the YMCA across the street to open. His favorite section of the library was that devoted to non-fiction history. Teaching at the college, university and high school levels for nineteen years only increased his passion for reading and research. The last twenty-five years of his working life were spent owning and operating an accounting practice.
Since his retirement in 2005, he and his wife Sally Dittman have lived in Sun City Center, Florida It was then that he began writing. In the fall of 2007, he finished his first Civil War era historical novel and his lecture career started as well. Responding to the public interest, he also completed a three-volume series on the assassinations of John and Robert Kennedy.
