MD (Mike as his friends call him) lives in Wyoming with his wife Nat and enjoys the great outdoors such as camping, hunting and fishing. A longtime resident of Wyoming, Mike has also lived overseas in Asia and enjoys returning to that part of the world, mostly to enjoy the various foods, and visit friends and family.
Mike finished his first full length novel in the Fiction/Historical/Native American genre a few years ago, Memories of a Distant Future, published on Smashwords. "It was such a great adventure to pick up this novel where I had left it years ago and finish it," he says. "I had an outline of where it was to go but where it ended up was nowhere near there but the novel is better for not sticking to the original outline." The story is set in the high plains of eastern Wyoming some time in the 'distant' past.
This novel is the first of three novels planned for the Way of the Horse series with more rattling around inside his head.

Review by: L. G. Cullens (author of Calan's Eden) on Oct. 4, 2016
As the author notes in his book description, a current day young man finds himself several hundred years in the past, in a North America before Europeans began to arrive. He recognizes the terrain of northern Wyoming, but is understandably confused by the absence of modern man's hand. So begin his adventures in a time closer to Nature.
The story is both awe inspiring and endearing, especially to me in being familiar with both the locale and people depicted. To those that look for depth in a story, the author's use of a simpler setting brings out humankind's good and bad proclivities.
My only issue with this book was the author's stumbling, drawn out start, where he might have better captured the reader's mind's eye and attention. I got over such though, as the author quickly hit his stride in presenting an engrossing story.
This isn't the kind of book where one can note snippets to interest potential readers, so I'll say only that many should find this book an immersing and enjoyable read.
