Michael began writing copy for newspapers in the early ’90s.
“As a photographer with a growing collection of travel photographs, I began writing copy to get them published. I sold my first story to a major Australian newspaper in 1994. Since then, my work has been printed in United Kingdom and New Zealand.”
Michael became the recipient of a diploma: Photography with Journalism.
Seethings became an entirely new writing project…. one that didn’t require a camera at all. It was to become a novel.
“I was itching to expand my creative horizons by using self-directed characters and narratives, drawing pictures with words not film.”
Seethings and Waves of Darkness are the first two books of a trilogy – a darker look at love, marriage, sex and photography. It’s about a photographer who’s eager to shoot the perfect thunderstorm but ends up inside a storm of the psychological kind.
The narrative places the reader at a cliff on the banks of the Brisbane River. A body is found near the Story Bridge by morning joggers after a night of wild thunderstorms.
