J. Morgan Michaels grew up being frequently called “annoyingly insightful," a trait that made writing stories about people come naturally.  He writes characters that you’ve never met before, but always wished you had.

His latest book, Secrets the Walkers Keep, follows Manhattan “Hat” Walker, a young man with the power to see the past who discovers that no one is ever who they appear to be, including his family.

Fresh From The Author

I’m J. Morgan Michaels, and this is my life.  


Crazy and dynamic characters are all around me - and many of them I’ll admit to being related to.  I have a cat too cool for just one name.  And I think everyone needs to laugh more.

I believe in the power of infinite possibilities, walking the path others won’t, and experiences that make a life worth living.  When I’m not writing, I’m finding ways to never have to work in an office again, listening to everything from 80s pop hits to electronic-inspired screamer rock, hitting people with sticks, or just staring up at the stars.

My new book, Secrets the Walkers Keep, is the product of many years of imagination, inspiration, and…well, a lot of damn work.  It’s the start of Manhattan “Hat” Walker’s story.  In it, there's magic, there's mystery, there's mayhem – but beneath it all there's a story about life.  And like life, it's harsh in some places, happy in others, and completely just unpredictable.  You can read more about me, Hat, and the crazy journey we’ve gone on together here.

Reader Reviews

Secrets the Walkers Keep is a multi-layered urban fantasy where magic and mystery are woven into an intricate, surprising, and sometimes shocking plot. It will be interesting to see what young Manhattan will get up to next.
Charles, Readers' Favorite
While it definitely has that gritty, hard-boiled detective novel feel, Secrets the Walkers Keep does not shy away from taking a real look at emotions and Michaels’ handling of Manhattan’s sexuality really made it a standout novel to me.

Secrets The Walkers Keep is intelligently written and is a surprisingly funny novel. The storytelling is fresh and layered, narrated in the first person, drawing a reader in with the perfect balance of suspense and humor.
