Raised in the Bronx, Michael Formichelli has been a die-hard fan of science fiction and fantasy since his mother first let him stay up late to watch Star Trek re-runs in the early 1980's.

Along with a passion for sci-fi, Michael is a lover of all things science related from astronomy to biology and beyond.

When not actively writing or absorbing science fiction media, Michael studies languages, astrophysics/cosmology, and works in the field of biology. He also holds a black-belt in Kendo, but has shamefully allowed himself to get rusty (he still practices from time to time).

He lives in orbit of New York City with his wife and a very sassy chinchilla.

Seriously. For some reason working out how long it would take a space ship to reach orbit or Mars just gets my creative juices flowing.(less)

Photo by Michael FormichelliRole-Playing Games, RPG's, probably saved my sanity and my social life when I was a kid. My oldest and best friends all come from the circle that started in junior high school with a table, some papers, books, and dice. Thinking about those days always puts a thick cloak of nostalgia around me and warms my insides.

Overall it was pretty decent, though I felt like not much happens. I'm also not sure I enjoyed the "grandfather knows all" thing.
