He has written in nearly every genre but has been most successful with hardboiled crime fiction and women's fiction, two genres that couldn't be more unalike.
Michael is also the editor of five crime fiction anthologies, including the three-volume Fedora series, and stories from his anthologies have been short-listed for the Anthony, Derringer, Edgar, and Shamus awards.
He has contributed articles to "The Writer" and other writing publications, contributed a chapter to the writing textbook "Many Genres, One Craft," was one of five authors featured in "Writing Erotica," and was extensively quoted in "The 101 Habits of Highly Successful Novelists."
