About Michael

I am a creative, defiant adoptee, father, historian, bibliophile, cinephile, and passionate observer of the human struggle of social outcasts that inhabit the Ghost Kingdom. I’ve followed a long and crooked road to here, but it’s given me the gift of being able to write fiction, non-fiction, drama and comedy with characters ranging from Hobos to CEOs playing around in settings that range from 19th century Europe and America to contemporary urban and rural life. From books and articles, to short stories and screenplays, my writing is inspired by Steinbeck, Orwell, W.C. Fields, and Bruce Robinson; my photography seeks to emulate Dorothea Lange.
