Michael Anthony Cariola was born in 1956, and is the son of nationally renowned artist, Robert J. Cariola. He was influenced in the arts at an early age with a love for classical music and literature.
Born and raised in Long Island, New York, Michael now makes his residence in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho with his wife, Jeri. Together, they share an avid passion for nature and gardening. Between them, they have three children: Noelle, Michael and Jonathon.
Michael, a true Renaissance man, has worked as a musician, an electronic technician, and a salesman. However, a few years in environmental lobbying gave him a broader knowledge of the ecological impact that modern man is having upon our planet. With a deep need to express his dismay with mankind’s unwillingness to alter the path of destruction he’s on, Michael found his voice and expression with the publication of The Singingwood and Arcalian Apocalypse.
The Chronicles of Abahrazha now concludes with book 3, Children of Prophecy.
