"Starred Review. Debut author Boccacino bowls the reader over with his note-perfect rendition of a spooky Victorian atmosphere.... Boccacinos deft handling of this delicately supernatural period piece makes it a sterling genre selection." - Publishers Weekly

Charlotte Markham and the House of Darkling Reader Reviews
Born in upstate New York and raised in central Florida, Michael blames his love of books on his father, who began reading him the Lord of the Rings trilogy when he was six, but stopped when he found out his son had snuck a VHS copy of the animated adaptation because he couldn't wait to see how it ended. Eventually he learned enough patience to earn his BA in Creative Writing from the University of Central Florida and his MBA from Rollins College. In addition to writing, Michael likes to travel to far off places and pretend that he's Indiana Jones, or experiment in the kitchen and convince others that he might not do so terribly on Iron Chef. He was quite possibly British in a past life, but he lives in and loves New York City
