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.

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!
This is the first time I'm writing on someone's wall after reading just one story of theirs, but man you deserve it! literally scared me to death with just one story! awesomely well-written and enjoyed the story very much!
