Michael Grant is the co-creator and co-author of the Animorphs and the Everworld book series,[1] and also the creator and author of Gone and The Magnificent 12 series. Michael was raised in a military family, attending ten schools in five states, as well as three schools in France. As an adult, he became a writer in part because "it was one of the few jobs that wouldn't tie him down to a specific location."[2] According to the back flap of one of his books: "He lives in California with his wife, Katherine Applegate, and their two children, and far too many pets."[2] He currently lives in Irvine, California.[3]

In early 2009 Grant released the sequel to Gonekut called Hunger . The third novel for this series, Lies, was released in the United States in May 2010. There will be three more books after, the fourth one Plague which was released on April 5, 2011, and then Fear which will be released in 2012, then " Darkness" and later Light.
