Michael Long writes mysteries because it’s cheaper than drugs and more fun than therapy. He frequently ends sentences with prepositions, uses the Oxford comma sporadically, and when he’s not sure what to write he has a guy come through the door with a gun. He lives in California with his wife and three children. Further details at Michaellongwrites.com
