Michael Grant is an American author of young adult fiction. He has written over 150 books, though most are as a co-author with his wife. Grant is the sole author of the Gone and BZRK series.
Michael Grant has spent much of his life on the move. Raised in a military family, he attended 10 schools in five states, as well as three schools in France. Even as an adult he kept moving, and in fact he became a writer in part because it was one of the few jobs that wouldn’t tie him down. His fondest dream is to spend a year circumnavigating the globe and visiting every continent. Yes, even Antarctica.
He lives in Southern California with his wife, Katherine Applegate, and their two children.
