About Michael Kula

As a writer, after beginning my career working largely in the short story form, I transitioned several years ago to the novel, and my first novel, The Good Doctor, is currently in final revisions. The novel is based on the true story of one of the most respected veterinarians in the country during the early part of the 20th century. The project has had a profound impact on my career and my interests, since it is the first time I have worked in historical fiction. Since making this change, I have become passionately interested in the subgenre of historical fiction, and the majority of my creative interests and my scholarship is now dedicated to the field. I have found the switch to the area an ideal fit with the interdisciplinary nature of IAS, and my recent research in the historical fiction has crossed over not only into the field of history, but also into religious studies and technical communications.
