Hello and thank you for visiting. I’m Mike, the registered dietitian and speculative fiction writer. Ever since the 4th grade, one of my life-long dreams was to write a book. Now I’m very proud to say that I’ve finished my first novel, and it was selected as a finalist in the Great Novel Contest. But I still feel there’s still a lot of work to do. The next time I submit my novel, or query an agent, my expectation will be to win, or get representation. 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 favorite sports team is the Browns, who just had their first 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.
