Michael was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. He received his Associate of Arts degree from The Art Institute of Atlanta. Michael spent many years doing local and regional art festivals before illustrating his first book. His artwork has been featured in many galleries including a show highlighting his book illustrations at the Hudgens Center for the Arts. He has illustrated three children's books:
- The Library Dragon (winner of the 1997 Flicker Tale Children's Book Award, an Honor Book for the 1997-1998 Florida Reading Association Children's Book Award)
- The Secret of Old Zeb (winner of an Award of Merit from the Southeastern Library Association) with Carmen Agra Deedy
- Harriett's Horrible Hair Day with Dawn Lesley Stewart
He is currently working on the sequel to The Library Dragon. Michael loves having his dream job -- working with students of all ages on how one idea can create a story. Michael lives in Atlanta with his wife, Traci; five-year-old daughter, the lovely and talented, Madeline; and five dogs. For more information on Michael P. White go to www.michaelpwhite.com/.
