Michael liked to write as a child. When he had a pen in hand, he had power. He could make new lives and give them names. He could see other countries and make new worlds.
At first, Michael wrote about places far away from home. Then the child became a man. He began to see life with new eyes. He wrote about people and problems close to home. He wrote about real life. He found his center, and life had meaning.
