Michael Giltner grew up in the small town of Humboldt, Tennessee, where he graduated from High School. He proceeded to attend Vanderbilt University on athletic scholarship in Nashville, TN. After completing his undergraduate degree, he continued his education receiving a Masters in Computer Science from SMU in Dallas, TX and a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Dallas. He presently lives in a suburb of Chicago. During his high school athletic career, he had the fortune / misfortune of experiencing the reliving of previously experienced events; every action was repeated in exact detail as previously experienced and created both a surreal and thought provoking situation; a situation that precipitated an open-minded approach to multiple life scenarios. This was further promoted by a chance meeting with Shirley McClain on the beach in Malibu and is reflected in his upcoming novel “Truth”. Recycled is an examination of present and past lives experienced.
