A BABY TO DIE FOR is Mike Slosberg’s third novel.
It, along with his previous two novels, THE HITLER ERROR and THE AUGUST STRANGERS, and a book of short stories, SEVEN STORIES TO READ BEFORE THEY BECOME MOVIES, are all available in paper and ebooks, on all electronic devices.
PIMP MY WALKER, a wickedly funny collection of Haiku poetry about old age, is only available in hardcover. A book of cartoons, done a long time ago, KLANDESTINED, is, alas, out of print. (Every so often a copy does pop up on eBay.)
Before having the luxury of writing full time, Mike was one of the original “Mad Men” working at that iconic ad agency, YOUNG & RUBICAM. He liked it there. A lot. They liked him, too and so he stayed for almost 25 years. He did well, won lots of awards and eventually was named president of their subsidiary, WUNDERMAN, RICOTTA & KLINE (now Wunderman Worldwide.) Mike eventually left Y&R to take an entrepreneurial challenge––partnering with a young, talented Michael Bronner, a man 24 years his junior, at Bronner’s small Boston marketing firm. They renamed the company, BRONNER SLOSBERG ASSOCIATES.
A dozen years later, their “little” company was the world’s largest independent direct marketing agency in America.
Mike entered the new millennium, as creative director and manager of the firm’s newly opened London office. Shortly after, the company went public––on NASDAQ, as DIGITAS––and Mike happily “re-purposed” himself to write fiction, among other creative pursuits.
Mike, along with his wife, Janet, has a passionate interest in theater. Along with four friends, they created OFF BROADWAY ANGELS, a not-for-profit that awards grants to small New York theater groups. Mike also sits on the Board of The Atlantic Theater Company.
Although born and raised in Pennsylvania, Mike is a passionate New Yorker. He lives in Manhattan, on the Upper Westside.
