My first memory of storytelling was my father reading to me from 'The Hobbit' when I was a child, showing me the pictures and describing Bilbo's adventures in his own wonderful words. As I grew up he would continue to tell me stories, some were based on local myths and legends, others on classic literature such as Poe, and a few were entirely of his own creation. 
      More than anything I owe my love for telling stories to my father, and the sense of wonder about the world which he encouraged me to explore. My name is Michael and it means a great deal to me that you have taken some time to read one or two of the stories I have written, born out of that imagination forged all those years ago.

I remember reading "Bedtime" on Creepypasta quite some time ago and I absolutely loved it. I'm glad I found your Wattpad profile. Now I can read a whole lot more of your stories, and I can't wait to start!
      I'm also an author of the horror genre and I really want to be able to spread around my book and stories like you have. If it's fine with you, could you give me some advice or pointers on how I could achieve that?
      Have a good one!
