After a successful career in marketing and finance, Michael Barnes Selvin began writing historical fiction. His first novel, The Telemachia, published in 2007, won an award from Independent Publisher in historical/military fiction in 2008 and continues to sell on the Internet and digital sites. He completed his second novel this year based on the artwork of the Master of Cabestany. As one of the great sculptors during the last half of the twelfth century in Catalonia (southern France and northeastern Spain), the artwork of the sculptor can be seen today in France, Spain, and Italy, but nothing is known of his life. Heaven Walker is the fictional account of his life and times. It is under consideration for publication. The author has graduate degrees in both English and business. He and his wife live in Berkeley, California, and, for many years have spent their summers on the French Mediterranean, in the village of Banyuls-sur-Mer. They have two sons and two granddaughters.
