About the Author

Author Info

  Michael Grady is the 6th grandchild of Cyril Joseph Letzelter, and the youngest of Cyril’s oldest child, Mary Elizabeth (Letzelter) Grady and her husband, the late W. Justin Grady.  

  He earned his degree in History in 1992 at Eastern Illinois University.  Since then, he’s worked in the field of state government relations.  Since 2010, he’s operated his consulting firm where he works on issues supporting various local government bodies, advocating for public health and anti-tobacco policies, supporting the developmentally and intellectually disabled, and waste management and recycling.

  He is an avid college football fan, and despite his love for his Grandfather’s exploits against Knute Rockne, he remains a rabid fan of the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame and still believes they got screwed out of the National Championship in 1989.

  He lives in Springfield, Illinois with his wife Alyson and their three children; Justin, Aidan, and Clare.
