About Michael Johns

There's lots of medical technical stuff I could say but suffice it to say I should be dead, and I should have only lived about one year. The doctors said I wouldn't make it, and wouldn't be able to do anything for myself if I did. Put simply, the symptoms involved very high fever, blindness, a stroke, etc. They say "Influenzal Menengitis." I say, thank God there's a shot for that now, but it wasn't there in 1966. It made for a difficult, very abnormal childhood.

Fast forward a few years. I completed a Bachelor of Science in Math at Purdue University, and studied a little electrical engineering, a little computer science, a lot of philosophy. I met a cute girl while I was there. Fast forward a few more years. I got married and forgot everything I learned. A few more years: I completed a Master of Divinity with Church Music from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. A few more years: There were 2 kids. A few more years: We moved back to Indiana. A few more years: We're still here and I'm "finding myself" as a writer: poet, novelist, children's story crafter. All along I have been writing but never publishing, until Smashwords.com.

I haven't "arrived" yet.
