About the Author

Michael “Doc” McCoy was born in San Rafael, California, on October 9, 1955. He lived in Marin County until his family moved to Sonoma Valley in 1963. After graduating from high school in Sonoma in 1973, Michael attended Santa Rosa Junior College and California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. Following college, Michael enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served aboard the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Independence (CV-62) from 1979 through 1982.

Michael began his writing career writing short stories in the late 1980s. When he took his broadcasting job in 1993, he started writing radio commercials, voice-overs, and news copy. In 2007, he began writing the biography of his mother and her family’s experience in a Japanese prison camp during WWII and completed the manuscript after his trip to the Philippines in 2008. His highly praised book, Through My Mother’s Eyes, was published by Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency in September of 2008. Michael wrote the award-winning screenplay adaptation, Under the Rising Sun, the following year. 

Michael is a technical writer at Keysight Technologies, as well as a radio personality, author, and screenwriter. He lives in Sonoma County with his wife, Angela. His son, Thomas, lives in Las Vegas with his wife, Carrie, and their two children, Gwenyth and Lincoln.
