Michael A. Ventrella is a lawyer, writer, and wiseass.

Michael graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University cum laude with a BA in Political Science.  He got his law degree from New England Law in Boston.

He’s worked on many political campaigns, including being the campaign manager for a state representative in Boston in 1986.  He served a year as President of the Massachusetts chapter of Americans for Democratic Action in the early 90s.  He’s taught Constitutional Law at Bunker Hill Community College in Massachusetts and Northampton Community College in Pennsylvania.

In his legal practice, he handles all the criminal defense cases in the Poconos’ #1 rated law firm, Fisher and Fisher. He’s won many cases and appeals and has argued before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

His book “How to Argue the Constitution with a Conservative“, from Gray Rabbit Publications, features illustrations by Pulitzer-Prize winning editorial cartoonist Darrin Bell.

He writes novels, plays music, and spends too much time with computer games when he should be working. He lives in the beautiful Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania with award-winning artist Heidi Hooper, his wife of 40 years. They love the pitter patter of little feet around the house (they have four cats — Mrs. Premise, Mrs. Conclusion, River, and “The Doctor”).

Despite all this, he is apparently best known for predicting a plot twist on “Game of Thrones.”
