About this author

Robert Allen Michael, born October 20, 1969 in Weston, West Virginia began telling tales when he was eight. He started with ghost stories, like the ones he read in books and heard from his family. Late at night, he would spin these tales hoping to scare his sisters or impress his mother.

In eighth grade, Robert wrote his first short story, a sort of "Children of the Corn" knock-off. He wanted so badly to impress his teacher that he even drew a cover replete with dripping blood from the title, blurbs and fake reviews. The story was hand-written, but demonstrated his love for writing and ability to spin a yarn.

Watch and read this--CNN Opinion: If I Were Jeff Bezos, by James Patterson
James Patterson\n Why so serious, James?
I have a different take on the Amazon/Hachette Book Group dispute, but this CNN piece (and James Patterson's rambling muses that are attached to the piece) are interesting.
