|About the Author|
Michael Gene (M.G.) Edwards writes fiction in the mystery, thriller, science fiction-fantasy genres as well as travel non-fiction. He first picked up his pen to write a mystery thriller far beyond the imagination of a typical ten-year-old. A prolific writer in his youth, he poured his passion to write into books and stories that bent the imagination. From mysteries to mythical tales, Edwards let his writing capture dreams spun from his vivid imagination, until life set him on a different course.
Edwards graduated with degrees in international studies, political science, history, and German from the University of Idaho and worked briefly in the U.S. Senate. He earned his master’s degree in China Studies from the University of Washington. After working at the Boeing Company for seven years, he left to earn a Master in Business Administration from the University of Washington and worked at the Intel Corporation, Microsoft, and the accounting firm Deloitte & Touche.
He served as a diplomat from 2004 until resigning from the U.S. Department of State in 2011. His overseas assignments included working as a consular officer at the U.S. Embassy in Seoul, Korea; as a political officer at the U.S. Embassy in Asunción, Paraguay, where he focused on political-military affairs and human rights; and as a political-economic officer at the U.S. Embassy in Lusaka, Zambia focusing on democracy, governance, and human rights. He is recipient numerous Department of State awards.
He also founded and runs Brilliance Equity LLC (BE), an investment firm specializing in emerging markets. His books are published by Brilliance Press, a BE subsidiary.
