My name is Michael F. Butchin.

I was born, according to the official records, in the Year of the Ram, under the Element of Fire, when Johnson ruled the land with a heavy heart; in the Cradle of Liberty, to a family of bohemians.

I studied Chinese language and literature at Rutgers University, New Brunswick. I spent some years in Taiwan teaching kindergarten during the day, and ESOL during the evenings. And although I have spent much of my career in education and language pedagogy, I currently work as a faceless drone in a corporate call center. I am also an unlikely martial artist.

I have spent much of my life amongst actors, singers, musicians, movie stars, beautiful cultists, Taoist immortals, renegade monks, and at least one martial arts tzaddik. I am an ordained Minister of the Church of the Latter Day Dude; I am available for weddings, convocations, lectures, and dude-mitzvahs.

Until recently, I had never seriously taken up writing. But now, with the publication of my first novel, I decided to establish this website to help me promote my book, interact with whatever fans of my writing might miraculously spring forth, and keep everyone posted on books to come.
