Michael Grant (born July 26, 1954) is an American author of young adult fiction. He has written over 150 books, though most are as a co-author with his wife.[2] Together they have written the Animorphs and the Everworld book series,[3] as well as the Making Out book series.[4] Grant is the sole author of the Gone Series, BZRK, the Messenger of Fear Series and has a new series, the first of which is called "Front Lines", publishing in January 2016. "Front Lines" was originally called "Soldier Girl".

Grant 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. He has lived in almost 50 homes in 14 states."[5] 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."[5] He currently lives in Tiburon, California.[6] His top selling book was Gone.
