About the Author

Michael Burns was born in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. His family moved to New Hampshire in 1950 where he attended high school, graduating in 1957. He deferred entrance to college to serve in the U.S. Navy for four years, seeing duty in Southeast Asia in the early days of the Vietnam War. After mustering out of the Navy, Burns returned to New Hampshire where he met and married his wife, and matriculated at the University of New Hampshire. Encouraged by his freshman English teacher, Burns first became interested in writing fiction in 1963. He continued writing after being inspired by the late Thomas Williams, National Book Award-winning author and mentor to many young writers, among them John Irving. In 1971, Burns joined the faculty of St. Paul's School, a college preparatory boarding school in Concord, New Hampshire. He retired from that school in 2004 after 33 years of teaching chemistry, life science, and creative writing. At present, Burns is living with his wife in rural New Hampshire where he is at work on his fourth novel. Gemini, his first novel, was published by Poncha Press in 2001. Where You Are is Burns' second novel.

Format: Paperback
This is a well-paced literary novel that explores relationships, loneliness, and the irrationality of longing for a thing one will never have. I loved it. The writing is clean and beautiful, and there is attention to words here like I rarely see in contemporary fiction--Burns has that ability to bring you into his character's world through the richness of details. The story is one that most people will be able to relate to, if in their own way, if ever the reader has take for granted another's role in his/her life. This is also a story about what it means to start over.
