  1. Tell us a little bit about yourself, Michael.

I’m a big sci-fi and fantasy fan; grew up playing D&D and ran games and became a storyteller at a young age. I’m also a second generation martial artist and use this in all my books. As far as locale, I was pretty much born and raised in Maine, which has been a nice place to live. It offers several seasons of beauty and helps fuel one’s imagination.

  1. When did you first start writing?

I did some non-fiction years ago – mostly newspaper articles, magazines etc., then some self-help bully prevention and women’s self-awareness/defense books. Over the last several years I have been able to fully concentrate on fiction writing which is my passion.

  1. Who are your favorite authors?

Tolkien, Martin, Salvatore, to name a few.

  1. What inspires you to write?

I have this creative energy inside me. It’s a great release of the constant everyday life pattern and really is fun for me.

  1. Tell us a little bit about your most recent release.

I just put out a novella called Rising. The little book is the prequel to my hit novel, Land of the Free. It tells the futuristic tale of one women’s journey becoming a mother to all exiles and rebels in a dystopian America. She goes on to start a sisterhood of strong women, who end up fighting for true freedom in the far future.

  1. What attracts to writing sci-fi and fantasy?

The escape! It’s so nice to travel to other worlds and be free and explore.

(Love this. That’s exactly why I do it too. DMK)

  1. What are you currently working on?

The sequel to Land of the Free which is called Hope Bringers. It continues the sisterhood’s fight for freedom and introduces a new generation of kick butt female kids that have joined the fight.  I will also have a short story, The Metal Girl, in an upcoming anthology with some other wonderful sci-fi and fantasy authors.

  1. What do you like to do to relax?

I like to go sit on the rocks by the Atlantic Ocean. I also enjoy reading and of course writing.

  1. If you could have any superpower what would choose?

Ha, I think I would pick the ability to be invisible!

  1. How can readers connect with you?

I use Facebook a lot. Check out my author page.

And my books on Amazon.

 

I want to thank you, my dear, for doing this interview

  • Michael

(Very pleased to have you – DMK)
