About the author

Salem Michael Katsh is a scion of a famous Jewish family that traces its lineage through generations of chief rabbis and Hebrew scholars. After attending a Jewish day school in Manhattan, he studied at the Hebrew University in Israel and graduated with the highest honors from New York University School of Law. He practiced law as a partner at Weil, Gotshal & Manges, and Shearman & Sterling. Katsh co-authored with Ira M. Millstein The Limits of Corporate Power (Macmillan 1981) and wrote more than forty articles for legal journals. Katsh has been recognized in every major survey of elite professionals—Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in the Law, Who’s Who in the World, Best Lawyers in America, and the coveted Chambers survey. He retired from the practice of law in 2017 to work full-time on writing fictional historical novels. Even as he became a leader of lawyers in his areas of specialty, he pursued varied eclectic interests—including motorcycling, mountain climbing, marathoning, competition archery, bowhunting, and spending time in his library of several thousand books on religion, mythology, and history.
He lives with his wife Robin Phillips, and their ebullient Labrador retriever, Bo, in Orient Point, NY
