I'm a writer. Most of the good stuff about me usually turns up in what I write. Maybe the bad stuff too.

When an intoxicating romance ignites between a college freshman and the ghost of a murdered student, they discover their road to happily-ever-after must not only survive against the harsh, painful realities of death, but of life as well. LOST ON THE EDGE OF FOREVER available now from Curiosity Quills.

Writer's block is single handedly the worst thing that could happen to a writer, but the odds of it sticking around are less likely the more one exercises their writing ability no matter what it is that's being written.(less)

One Writer's Journey to Publication via Fashion

One Writer’s Journey to Publication via Project Runaway
Writing any book, whether its fiction on non-fiction, can be a daunting task. Especially daunting are the competing feelings of “Everything I’ve written today is so brilliant that Proust would be in awe!” to “I’ll never finish my ‘why doesn’t she love me?’ epic I’ve been working on since high school!” I’d love to say that as a published author

It’s not often that I recommend a book, let alone a series, on the basis of “I thought the characters were likable.” In fact, I don’t believe I’ve ever done so, as even characters I “like” I tend to view as machinations of form, structure, or maybe t ...more

“Their souls—or maybe just our memories of them—belong to that place which even the dead can only dream of, the miraculous place from which our struggles and our dreams are born. A vastly complex and yet achingly simple place, built in eternal preservation of the very best of our natures. A place that’s the finite distillation of the only journey that matters to both the heavens and the earth―the eternal journey to discover ourselves, a self that dies only to live young again within the ecstatic heartbeat of another. A miraculous place full of death, tragedy and despair, yet from which love is born eternal.”
Michael Haley, Lost on the Edge of Forever

“From the point of our birth, our point of departure if you will, we are both the shapers and the voyagers of a fantastic journey that’s both intensely personal and yet intensely universal, a journey that takes us to the very limits of ourselves and back again to the birth of new possibilities.”
Michael Haley, Lost on the Edge of Forever

“Who could be so lucky? Who comes to a lake for water and sees the reflection of moon?”
Rumi

“If you remember me, then I don't care if everyone else forgets.”
Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

“From the point of our birth, our point of departure if you will, we are both the shapers and the voyagers of a fantastic journey that’s both intensely personal and yet intensely universal, a journey that takes us to the very limits of ourselves and back again to the birth of new possibilities.”
Michael Haley, Lost on the Edge of Forever

“Never let your sense of morals prevent you from doing what is right.”
Isaac Asimov, Foundation

“I don’t know what I did to deserve someone as smart and beautiful as you.”

"You were you. And maybe that was enough.”
