Bewildering Stories

Mike McNichols

Although I am a native Californian, I was born in the south: San Diego. That’s right; any further south and you’re in another country.

I usually write about theology and faith, but I also create supernatural thrillers that have an underlying theological question or two. My first novel, The Bartender: A Fable about a Journey, was a doctoral project and received a dissertation award in its category.

The second book in my Vampire Trilogy that started with This Side of Death, was released in December 2012 with the title A Body Given. The third installment to the series, On Turpin’s Head, was released in early 2014. A collection of short stories, Dark Ocean, was released as a Kindle book in March 2012.

I have worked in the fields of education, business, and ministry. I studied theology, biblical studies, and leadership at Fuller Theological Seminary and George Fox Evangelical Seminary. I currently serve as Director of Fuller Seminary’s Orange County Regional Campus in Irvine, California. I am married, have two married daughters, and six grandchildren.
