By day, Michael Adelberg is a health policy wonk on Capitol Hill; by evening, he is an historian focused on civil warfare during the American Revolution; about midnight, he turns into a fiction writer and book reviewer. Sleep is overrated.
Mr. Adelberg is the author of several publications across all three interests, including: the Medicare & You Handbook (40 million copies printed) and several essays on health care regulation; the newly-published Theatre of Spoil and Destruction (History Press, November 2010), about civil warfare in Monmouth County, New Jersey, during the American Revolution; and his first novel, A Thinking Man’s Bully, published by the Permanent Press in 2012.

Mr. Adelberg holds masters degrees in History and Public Policy, and has received numerous professional honors for his health policy and history work, including the Council for Excellence in Government Fellowship and the Jane G. Clayton Award. His book about the American Revolution, The Razing of Tinton Falls, came out in mid-2012.
His historical research has been featured in leading journals such as the Wilson Quarterly and the Journal of Military History, and he has held adjunct faculty positions in the History and English departments of various two and four-year colleges.
Mr. Adelberg lives in Vienna, Virginia, with his very-tolerant wife and sons.
