Meet Mike Lewis
Mike grew up in Dedham, MA, and attended Bishop’s University in Quebec, as well as the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. Lewis was playwright-in-residence at the Los Feliz Playhouse in Los Angeles and had a number of works produced and favorably reviewed by the Los Angeles Times, the LA Weekly, The Boston Globe, and others. He also wrote, produced, and acted in Getting Personal, an independent feature film that has aired on Showtime, Cinemax, and the Lifetime Channel.
“Cap’n McNasty’s Pirate Guide” is book #4 in the Cap’n McNasty picture book series, following “The Great Pirate Christmas Battle” (2014), “Battle For The Knotty List” (2016), and “The Great Thanksgiving Food Fight” (2017). He’s very excited for the release in 2021 of his first Middle Grade book, “Fight Like A Girl”, a compilation of stories highlighting the 25 toughest female warriors in history.
Mike has hosted and/or participated in over 150 author events, panels, and book readings at schools, libraries, hospitals, book stores, and charitable organizations such as Horizon’s For Homeless Children, The Boys & Girls Clubs, Boston Children’s Hospital, The Girl Scouts, and many others.
When not moonlighting as a children’s book author, Mike works at Northwestern Mutual Advisors as a financial planner, helping clients manage risk, protect assets, and pay less in taxes. He resides in the Boston-area with his beautiful wife and four awesome sons.
