MICHAEL B. ZUCKER
Historical Fiction Author
Michael Zucker grew up in Arizona and lives in Virginia with his family. He became interested in storytelling as a five year old and wrote “books” about dinosaurs at seven. At 15, he discovered historical fiction and never looked back.
He is best known for his biographical novels, The Eisenhower Chronicles and The Middle Generation, which give nuanced portrayals of great but underrated American leaders and portray their contributions to foreign policy and civil rights. His adventures, Theodore Roosevelt and the Hunt for the Liopleurodon and A Great Soldier in the Last Great War, are for young adults but have been enjoyed by readers of all ages.
Zucker’s works have been praised for their character depth, dialogue, and historical accuracy, and The Eisenhower Chronicles won Best Fictional Biography at the 2023 BookFest.
