SEATTLE - Jan. 14, 2014 - PRLog -- Seattle area actor, Greg Michaels, has acted in over fifty theater productions, more than forty television shows, and choreographed dozens of fights for stage and screen. Now, however, when the veteran actor declares, “I am an author” he isn’t playing a role—The Secrets of Casanova, his debut novel, has recently been published. The book, loosely based on Casanova’s extraordinary life, is a provocative blend of mystery, adventure, and romance. There’s something for everyone in The Secrets of Casanova.

Before Michaels put a single word on paper—but after two long years of historical research—he was gifted “seed money” by a friend; the author promptly hired a baby-sitter for his young son and began work. He continued rewriting the novel while working as a professional actor—no small feat since many of his auditions were 165 miles away. “My determination has paid off,” says Michaels. “I’ve written the book I envisioned. It’s a genuine pleasure to hold a dream in your hand.”

Michaels’ novel has one element that few other historical fiction books can claim—the writer is an expert swordsman. “This means the book’s rough-and-tumble adventures capture an authenticity many novels can’t,” says Michaels.  He then offers a wry smile. “As for the seductions in the book—trust me, they’re all based on Casanova’s exploits.”

For all those lovers of historical fiction, The Secrets of Casanova is available on, Barnes and, and iTunes.
