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, a sassy chinchilla, and a very precocious cat.

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)

I have been really bad about keeping up with this blog, let's face it.
On the plus side, very close to getting Book 4 finished... On the minus side, I mean to do this post before July and half of August passed by... Can you believe we're 1/2-way through August?

So, let's recap:

July:

I loved it. Nuff said. Find a theater still playing it. It's worth it.




August:
