“As a photographer with a growing collection of travel photographs, I began writing copy to see some of that work published. I learned to write and then sold my first story to a major Australian newspaper in 1994. The images and text were seen right around the country! Later, I broke into the international magazine market by providing images and copy to the United Kingdom and New Zealand.”
Michael studied and became the recipient, of a diploma; Photography with Journalism and immediately set out writing even more articles to support the shots of the places he’d visited.
SEETHINGS was an entirely new writing project. Unlike writing for newspapers, fiction allowed Michael to explore new areas with broader ideas.
“Travel stories are based on fact but I wanted to step away from the camera and create something new in words alone. I think every writer wants to do that – take a little of their own creative ideas and turn them into stories. I know was itching to expand my creative horizons.”
In November 2014, his first novel was made available for sale!
It was worth it. With the help of Amazon and Kindle, copies of SEETHINGS were ready for the world to read before Christmas 2014!
SEETHINGS is the first of a trilogy -a darker look at love, sex and sexless marriages. A photographer who is keen to photograph the perfect thunderstorm winds up chasing a storm of another kind. Get ready for twists that’ll churn your stomach!
What’s the other two novels called? Well, their titles haven’t been released yet. When the final manuscript has been approved, that’s when both book titles will be revealed. Until then, stay tuned here for information.
“To be fair (and not to spoil things) I’ll announce the title when both books are ready for sale. If you’re an official subscriber to this site, you will know right away because an email will be posted.”
“Read SEETHINGS. You won’t be disappointed.” -Mx
