Michael Lewis

Biography

Writing has always been an obsession of mine since times I can’t remember. I started off writing songs, then poetry, later I began forming stories as my imagination grew into a monster, but like everything else in my life, I had little education, and all that I have learned, I learned on my own. I taught myself to write ‘proper’ and studied Children’s Literature under the watchful eye of Shirley Raye Redmond who taught me a lot about story structure. But writing for children was not for me. I love horror. I love my children also, but I wanted to create something sinister, like my personality...(lol.)
I'd like to be a mix between Stephen King, and Rob Zombie. Edgar Allan Poe, and Jim Morrison. H.P. Lovecraft and Dr. Suess.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
Actually there are Ten stories in my first book of tales. Soul Train is about a train engineered by the devil, and collects souls. The Black Cat speaks for itself. Only this Black cat brings a person good luck instead of bad, until the end. Death Bed, is about a detective who is dying of cancer, and sells his soul to the devil in order to live his life to the fullest. There are other stories such as The Lands of Vulgaria, an H.P. Lovecraftian tale, Old Betty, and some poems from my poetry book 'Death Awaits The Resurrection.'
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I had no clue I was going to become an Indie author. I've been writing since 1992, and decided to publish a poetry book first with LULU.com for family. Then I began writing short stories that I had sent off to numerous magazines, only to get rejected time and time again. About that time in 2010 I started to notice a boom in Indie publishing, and decided it was time, at the ripe ol' age of 40 to jump on the wagon before I got left behind.
