Mike'a debut mystery Novel, The Outlaw River Wilde, sprung from an idea while watching the X-Files and Ancient Aliens on the tele. He intertwines his love of Native American culture, a passion for the Pacific Northwest, primarily his birth state of Oregon, and fascination with the mysterious events taking place in the X-Files and Ancient Aliens. Mike sat down one day and started writing. The characters and story came to life as he wrote.

"Every session was as if I were reading something new myself for the first time. It is a blast to see what happens. I worked hard at taking thoughts I have had over the years watching Ancient Aliens and the X-Files, as well as my love of Native American culture and the Pacific Northwest. Molding these ideas

I also like to sit down and simply pick up where i left off and write about something very simple and character driven. I still get surprised at the direction that the story goes.(less)
