About the author (2010)

Michael lives in mid-coast Maine with his wife, their Weimaraner named Skye, and Psycho the cat. Michael was fortunate enough to have attended private schools, the Marine Corps, and then business college. Following those life experiences, he was employed by some of the top Fortune 500 corporations in sales and management. To fulfill his version of a satisfying career...he made the decision to drastically alter his occupation and lifestyle. Michael now kicks back at the end of the day and enjoys his evening vodka Gibson—straight up, one onion—while contemplating his next boat, a forty-four foot lobster yacht, and organizing another writing project.
