Bret Michaels has thrived in the music circuit as the lead vocalist of glam metal band Poison and has found his niche on television with his highly rated VH1 series, Rock of Love.  Now, the 44-year-old rock star has come up with an autobiography that will enable fans and spectators as well to get to know him in an all-new light.  Called Between a Rose and a Thorn, the book is expected to be released this year and is published by Simon & Schuster, Inc.

Apart from his band Poison, which achieved great success and popularity in the late 1980s and continues to sell out concerts and recording albums at present, Michaels has consistently worked on special solo projects including his forthcoming highly anticipated album due this fall.

As a solo artist, Michaels has come up with several solo albums, including “A Letter from Death Row,” “Country Demos,” “Songs of Life” and “Freedom of Sound,” just to name a few.  In the past, he has also recorded with Brad Arnold of 3 Doors Down, Mark Wills, Chris Cagle, Stevie Nicks, and has performed with the likes of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kenny Chesney and Steven Tyler.

While he never left the music scene, Michaels has branched out to world of entertainment when he established a film production company, Sheen/Michaels Entertainment, with actor Charlie Sheen, who currently stars on the sitcom Two and a Half Men.  In line with this, Michaels has produced the 1998 movie A Letter from Death Row in which he starred in and served as writer and director, and the feature film Free Money, starring Marlon Brando and Mira Sorvino.  Now, he stars on the reality series Rock of Love where he is on a love quest to find his ideal match among a pool of women vying for his heart.

In addition to his book, fans can find out more about Bret Michaels when the Biography Channel premiers its "Biography" special on the musician turned reality TV star on April 5.
