Thanks for dropping by. I’m Michael L. Thal, an award winning writer and author of middle school and YA novels. I’ve written over 80 published articles on a plethora of topics, but most of my work has been about parenting and child rearing. My work has appeared in Highlights for Children, San Diego Family Magazine, Sacramento Parent, The Jewish Journal and Oasis Journalto name a few.
I taught for the Los Angeles Unified School District, Montebello USD, and Glendale USD totaling 28 years until a severe hearing loss made teaching an impossible task. I’m also the proud father of two adult daughters, Channie and Koren and the grandfather of Arielle.
Here’s the place where I can share my stories and books. Please browse to discover more about my work. If you have a moment, visit my column at the Los Angeles Examiner.
