Mike Donohue is the author of the popular Max Strong thriller series. The Max Strong series follows a thief and criminal trying to put a lot of tragedy, bad decisions, and blood behind him and live a quiet life. Only Max is not the type of guy to turn down trouble.
Mike was born in Trenton, New Jersey, but has no recollection of the place. Raised in Rhode Island he was an avid reader from an early age but not one of those people that claim to know they wanted to be a writer in their crib. When he was small, he wanted to be Larry Bird or Jim Rice.
He thanks his Mom for his love of reading even if she was one of those people that often flipped ahead to read the last chapter of a mystery. He is adamantly not one of those people. She also took him to the library a lot. He devoured the Hardy Boys. And Penguin Reader Biographies. And Robert Heinlein. And Ray Bradbury. As a proper book nerd, he read a lot of science fiction in his early teens. A lot.
He now lives outside Boston with his wife, two daughters, and Dashiell Hammett. Dash is the family dog.
He’ previously worked as a waiter, a moving man, an ice cream scooper, a management consultant, and a web designer.
When he’s not writing, Mike enjoys triathlons, making pizza, and reading.
