Michael P. Fuller



Michael P. Fuller was born in Evanston, Illinois and received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and Sociology in 1977 from Southern Illinois University. He lives in Atlanta, Georgia with his wife and 2 daughters.

Sometime in the mid 90’s, I started creatively writing fiction. I guess it was Richard Wright ‘Native Son’ and believe it or not, Steven King’s ‘Stand’ that may have inspired me to jot down my first untrained ideas. A story would begin without knowing where the characters and plot or lack thereof would end up, which to me was the most exciting part of the creative process.

After some time had passed, my first manuscript was complete, which I never read again. Instead, I threw it in a drawer unedited and unread by anyone. I wrote and finished another story and again tossed it into the drawer of no return. I continued my story telling letting the characters, times and places drive my way through the story writing process while piling story on top of story in the drawer of no return.

So what was it? Why did I continue to write? I wasn’t trying to make a name for myself as an author or try to become wealthy, but for me it was just the time I spend alone in my writer’s closet with not a soul to direct my path. I could close my eyes, then bend and twist the story to go and do anything.

Now, we’ve finally come to this. ‘Chronicles of a Nappi Head.’ It is my first independently published book.
