I am an award-winning author of novels and short stories. My latest book, Dream With Little Angels is being published by Kensington Books and should be on shelves in the summer of 2013.
I like to write surprising stories that cross genres, and are often mysterious. I’ve been writing most of my life, but I’ve really spent the last decade perfecting my craft. My writing seems to be a blend of mystery and the fantastic. I like to find the redemption in the horrific; the surviving heart still left beating among all the sorrow; the beautiful lost somewhere in all the ugliness of the world.
It’s actually a lot easier than it sounds.
I won the prestigious Surrey International Writer’s Conference Storyteller’s Award twice in a row. This award is sponsored each year by New York Times bestseller Diana Gabaldon and bestseller Jack Whyte.
My first story to win, My Lame Summer Journal by Brandon Harris, Grade 7 later went on to be listed as one of the top fifty most distinguished mystery stories published that year. It received that acclaim in The Best American Mystery Stories edited by Joyce Carol Oates.
The second story is called But Not Forgotten.
Both stories appear in short story anthologies I've recently published that are available on my website at http://www.michaelhiebert.com/dangerboy-books/ While you're there, sign up for my newsletter and receive terrific discounts on my books as well as other great benefits.
I hope you enjoy my writing. I look forward to reading some of yours, too.
