About the authors

Mike Halleen is a huge Van Halen fan, has been since the original David Lee Roth era. He got the idea for a Van Halen Movie one day and without regard for any issues of feasibility, started writing.

Thalia Buitron met Mike after several drafts were done and helped him finish it, punching up dialogue and readability, shaping scenes, and general polish.

Both are now on to other projects but are excited for people to read the finished work.
