All About Michael Palmer

Michael Palmer’s new Dr. Lou Welcome novel, Political Suicide, comes out in January 2013.

According to Palmer’s website, he got such a bad grade on his first college English paper that  he named one of his villains after the professor.

But despite his slow start, Palmer has had 9 novels on the NY Times Bestseller list – and political suicide promises to be number 10.

Palmer is a medical doctor by training and was inspired to start writing by Robin Cook – a fellow Wesleyan University graduate. Palmer’s younger sister helped him identify enjoyable elements of thrillers and the Corey Prescription was born.

Palmer isn’t just a writer, he still uses his medical training at the Massachusetts Medical Society helping doctors struggling with illness or substance abuse get back on track.
