Short biography
Michael Jensen is the author of two gay historical fiction novels, Frontiers (Pocket Books 1999) and Firelands (Alyson, 2004). Frontiers was hailed as “...a breathtaking novel”...“racing narrative, high drama, vivid images, keen dialogue, even hot sex”...“the creation of a new genre...written with passion, wit, and a heart as big as the continent...”

Mr. Jensen is the co-founder of IGLOO, a gay and lesbian employee group that successfully fought to bring domestic employee benefits to the airline where he has worked as a flight attendant for fifteen years. In addition, Mr. Jensen also co-founded a successful gay and lesbian authors group that has brought together a diverse group of writers to help promote gay and lesbian fiction.
