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.

Have you thought of publishing all of your 1 page short story into a book? I like all of them! You're a great writer with an amazing imagination! I'd really love to buy the paperback though 
I just read your story "bedtime" and I have to go to sleep but...now I'm scared,my heart is thumping in my chest as if it'll burst.
      yeah I feel retarded...and now it's time for bed...oh God this was a terrible thing to do.
Well I have to say your a amazing writer. I usually don't scare from horror or paranormal books but I'll gladly say that yours frightened the life out of me. Keep it up!
