Michael Part

I am the author of the bestselling The Greta Thunberg Story Being Different is a Superpower and the critically acclaimed Soccer Star series for young readers which is published in 17 languages in 36 countries. My award winning book, The Flea – The Amazing Story of Leo Messi is an international bestseller for eight years running. I have written motion pictures and television movies and TV shows including the Disney classic theatrical feature, "A Kid in King Arthur's Court", and a number of anime features including the groundbreaking, "Starbirds!" I got my start in the 5th Grade, staying up late and watching "The Twilight Zone" on Friday nights, then rewriting that episode into a 5 or 6 page typed-up story, leaving spaces for illustrations. After that, I'd get my pal John Petty to do some pencil illustrations. I used carbon paper so I always had 3 copies of the manuscript. When complete, I'd bring the finished manuscript to school on Monday and sell the copies for 15-cents, each. I made just enough to buy a hot lunch in the cafeteria. I'm currently working on a new series of children's action-adventure novels. I was born in Sheboygan Wisconsin and live in the San Fernando Valley in Southern California with my wife Lisa and our 5 children, 8 cats and a Yellow-Nape Amazon parrot named Burrita, who named himself.
