About the Author
W. Michael Gear was born on May 20, 1955 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He attended Colorado State University and has held several positions in the fields of archeology and paleontology. He married Kathleen O'Neal Gear in 1982, and they have collaborated on a series of books for young adults. The theme of these books is ancient civilizations, and the titles include People of the Wolf, People of the Fire, and People of the Sea. In their first book, People of the Wolf, twin brothers are born of parents from rival tribes. They are raised in the tribe of one parent and must deal with the conflict of belonging. These books, along with those of author Jean Auel, helped to revitalize an interest in early civilizations. Gear has also written several books by himself, mainly in the science fiction genre. The Forbidden Borders Trilogy is a popular series of books about experiments perpetrated by aliens on humans.
