Michael Hale lives in Elora, Ontario. He was born in Liverpool, England, and at the age of seven emigrated with his family to Canada. He grew up in Aurora, Ontario before moving to Toronto to attend The University of Toronto and the New School of Art. In the early eighties, while earning a living as a graphic designer, he wrote his first novel, "The Other Child." It was short-listed (under the title "Wakings") for the 1984 Seal Books First Novel Contest and was later published (in 1986) by Avon. The Globe and Mail called his most recent novel “[…] a suspenseful tale that skillfully weaves details from the characters' lives into a driving narrative that bounces back and forth through time while never losing its forward momentum.” He is working on a new novel with the help of a grant from the Canada Council.
