Michael Reagan is a writer, lecturer, and the son of President Ronald Reagan. Even before his father was president, Michael Reagan was an accomplished author. He wrote a number of novels and non-fiction essays as well as screenplays and television scripts.

“People forget that before I was Ronald Reagan’s son, I was Jane Wyman’s son,” Michael Reagan tells Scott Ross of The 700 Club. “She was the big deal in the ‘40s and ‘50s. It wasn’t until my dad got into politics and did the Barry Goldwater speech that people said, ‘Oh, that’s Ronald Reagan.’ So I went from being Jane Wyman’s son to Ronald Reagan’s son.” (Source: www.cbn.com)

Michael was the son of Hollywood elite. From all appearances, he led a charmed life. But you know the old saying: appearances can be deceiving. Jane Wyman and Ronald Reagan divorced in 1948. That meant boarding school for six-year-old Michael and his older sister Maureen. (Source: www.cbn.com)
