Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan, a native of Saginaw, Michigan, now makes his home on Longboat Key Florida with his wife, Linda Gross Brown, a professional artist. Before moving to Florida, Michael practiced law for many years in Cleveland, Ohio, and has long been selected to Best Lawyers in America. Although he no longer practices law, he still provides services as an arbitrator in commercial and health care disputes. He is a graduate of Ohio Wesleyan University (Phi Beta Kappa, Omicron Delta Kappa, summa cum laude), and of the George Washington University Law School, where he was a member of the law review.

The Company of Demons is Michael’s first novel, and he is currently working on a thriller set during WWII. Although writing has always been an important part of his life, he was able to focus on learning the craft after he retired from the active practice of law. He has no regrets about that decision!
