Michael was born in Berlin, Germany, but moved to the Netherlands and founded the Applied Logic Laboratory at the University of Amsterdam.
He lives on the Cote d'Azur now where he writes half-serious prose, mostly gay-themed. His first novel, GREEN EYES, was a finalist of the Lambda Literary Awards last year. His second novel, a sequel, THIS IS HEAVEN, will be out in September 2017. He loves cats, dogs, views, chess, mushrooms, hikes, and his partner Chang.

His short stories have appeared on the pages of Temptation Magazine, EtherBooks, Gay Flash Fiction, The Bear Review, and LustSpiel Magazine. A new short story is due in Bunbury, the English lit magazine.

“This would be the moment to say 'I love you', although you never know what you get back, like 'moi non plus', statistically the most honest answer (moi non plus, French, used by Serge Gainsbourg, the one and only basis for his fame, this noun phrase, meaning "me neither"), or 'I love you too', but uttered unconvincingly, or 'I love you too', uttered more convincingly, although you know it's bullshit.”
