Michael Krentz

Mike Krentz writes medical suspense, psychological thrillers, and military fiction featuring complex characters and multiple POVs. His medical thriller, DEAD ALREADY, launched in November 2020 from TouchPoint Press. His psychological thriller, ANGELS FALLING, is in process for publication in late 2021 by TouchPoint Press. A four-book series of character-centered military/medical fiction is under contract with TouchPoint Press. The first book, SHOW OF FORCE, will launch in 2022.

Born and raised in Arizona, Mike earned a classical degree in English from the University of San Francisco, a Doctor of Medicine degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin, and a Master of Public Health Degree from Johns Hopkins University.

Following a successful civilian career in emergency medicine that included election as President of the American College of Emergency Physicians, Mike rededicated his professional life to serve America's Navy and Marine Corps heroes and their families, and to honor their sacrifices in defending our freedom and way of life.

After retiring from the US Navy, Dr. Krentz returned to his earliest life passion as full-time writer of character-based stories.
