Michael S. Palmer spent six years working as an assistant and development executive at Hollywood production companies like Kopelson Entertainment (SE7EN, PLATOON, THE FUGITIVE, DEVIL'S ADVOCATE) and Krasnoff|Foster Entertainment (THE SOLOIST, GHOST RIDER, NBC's COMMUNITY) before transitioning into writing full time. He is now a member of the WGAw, a part-time Blu-ray Disc reviewer, an overall gadget and HD enthusiast, and content manager for the Steve's Digicams brand. His greatest success thus far was marrying the girl of his dreams, who let him purchase his first DSLR before their whirlwind honeymoon amidst the epic Alaskan landscapes and wildlife. He loves experimenting with new photographic techniques, with an emphasis on cinematic vistas, unique angles and textures, and faces with interesting stories.
