Born in the Chihuahuan desert of northern Mexico, Michael’s parents promptly packed him up like precious cargo along with his siblings and moved to El Norte. He remained and established roots in the Pacific Northwest, receiving his BA from Gonzaga University and his JD from Willamette University.

In 1977, Michael did a brief stint with the U.S. Marine Corps. Later, as an attorney, he has served as a prosecutor, parole board member, and assistant attorney general for the State of Oregon. He now earns a living working as a legal assistant in a Salem law firm and as an author of fiction.

Michael’s debut novel, The Guadalupe Saints, was published by Paraguas Books in April 2011 and won Second Place in the 2012 International Latino Book-to-Movie Awards. His novella, Seeking Tierra Santa, received Honorable Mention in the 2013 ILBA for Best Novel in the adventure/drama category.

His poetry has appeared in “200 New Mexico Poems.”

Michael’s fiction has been published in over twenty literary journals and magazines. Some of those stories are included herein. He is currently polishing his fourth novel for publication. He has also been published in seven different legal periodicals.

Michael moved to the United States shortly after being born in the Chihuahuan desert of northern Mexico—his parents packed him and his six siblings up like precious cargo and emigrated to El Norte, making the trip North by car. Later, the Pacheco family would grow to 10 children.

Michael established roots in the Pacific Northwest and received a BA from Gonzaga University.

He served in the United States Marine Corps till 1977, completing basic training at the Officer Candidate School in Quantico, Virginia. Soon thereafter, he decided to attend law school. Accordingly, he requested and was granted an Honorable Discharge. Michael earned his law degree at Willamette University.
