Mike Houtz & Dark Spiral Down

Mike Houtz just signed a deal with Wild Rose Press to publish his first novel, Dark Spiral Down.

The deal wouldn’t have happened had Mike not signed up for one of the key features at every Colorado Gold conference—to pitch to the many agents and editors who fly into Denver every September for the express purpose of meeting new talent.

One thing to led another and Mike signed the deal with Wild Rose Press just a couple of weeks ago.

After a career in medicine, Mike Houtz succumbed to the call to hang up his stethoscope and pursue his other passion as a writer of fast-paced thrillers.

A rabid fan of authors such as Tom Clancy, Brad Taylor, Vince Flynn and Brad Thor, Mike loves series writing with strong characters, fast pacing and international locations.

When not at the keyboard, he can be found on the firing range, coaching youth sports, or trying out the latest dry-fly pattern on a gold medal trout stream.

Mike lives with his wife and two young sons at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains just west of Denver.
