Hello and thank you for visiting! My name is Mike, and I’m a registered dietitian and speculative fiction writer. Ever since the 4th grade, one of my life-long dreams has been to write a book. Now I’m very proud to say that I’ve finished my first novel, PARALITHS, and it was selected as a finalist in the Great Novel Contest. I’m currently sending queries to agents, so please wish me luck.

I’ve set up this site as a hub for my creative writing. I enjoy writing because it makes me feel human. About once a month, I’ll post a new blog on a nutrition topic or on a speculative fiction piece–or the combination of the two. My goal will always be to look at things simply, imaginatively, and to not bore the living hell out of you. So if you’re interested in your health and have an overactive imagination, you’re in the right place.
I’m a BIG Cleveland sports fan. My most favorite sports team is the Browns, who haven’t had a winning season in over a decade. I’m also a graduate of The Ohio State University with bachelors degrees in Communications and Medical Dietetics. Go Bucks!
At my home, you’ll find many books on my bookshelves that have been made into movies. One of my favorite things to do is watch a movie and then read the book that inspired it, or vice-versa. I love to see how movie producers translate a book. Usually, they do a crappy job, for I have rarely watched a movie that was better than the book.
