About the Author

When Michael William Hogan was a young boy he spent his summers kicking through the tall reeds along the beaches of northern Michigan. Today you might find him cutting through the thick jungle of his island retreat in Tonga. Could this be a sign of someone’s refusal to grow up?

Perhaps. But Michael’s lifelong love of adventure and his penchant for storytelling has resulted in numerous award-winning screenplays, short stories, webisodes and children’s books. He has also produced and directed award-winning short films that have screened at film festivals in the U.S. and Europe.

Sebastian and the Invisible Island is based on Michael’s feature film screenplay, Sebastian and the Lost Atoll.
