About Michael P Amram

I have been a published author since 2005. I first published a nonfiction book called, rhetorically, Would God Move a Ping-Pong Table? It is sub-titled “a cumulative analysis of faith and religion. No, I honestly do not think God would move a Ping-Pong table. But it was moved in 1988 in a dormitory at the University of Minnesota-Duluth, and my Christian dorm mate still insists I attribute this act to my prayers to God.
I graduated from the University of Minnesota- Duluth with an English degree and a passion to write. I worked full time jobs and wrote on the weekends. I even kept a journal for a few years. In 1998, from a series of short stories based on experiences working at a health club, an obscure Canadian publication published “The Den of Antiquities” under the pen name M.B. Moshe.
I wrote. . .and I wrote. I filled 3.5 floppies with text; fiction and vast catalogues of poetry. I look back now and see how I got tighter (in writing). I see how my writing pecked for, and finally found that voice that is imperative. I am always improving (you judge), finding the voice that is me, but still observant of my audience and their accessibilities.
In 2011 I began writing about an incident I observed in a small local barber shop. An Orthodox Jewish man entered with his young son. He instructed the barber to take a little off the sides for his boy. From that happening, ideas surmounted, culminating into my first historical fiction novel, The Orthodoxy of Arrogance. I looked at some indie publishers and decided on one. The novel came on the market in January of 2013.
When I was a single man, I traveled. I’d go to Europe and the Mid-east brash and free. Sometimes I bit off more than I could chew. In the spring of 2013 I published Scenes the Writer Shows {forty-one places a poem can go}, many of which are based on those travels.
Now, at 50, I consider myself part of the comparatively small family of writers who follow only the direction of their muse. I have few commitments. For the foreseeable future, I have no intent of going back to the confines of a forty hour work week in the corporate game of drones. Slowly, with each publication, each tweet mentioned or morning haiku, I like to hope I am getting closer to not being.
I published a second novel and poetry collection in 2014. I am currently compiling a memoir about growing up in the midst of the DFL (Democratic Farmer Labor) during the pivotal years of efforts to end the Vietnam War. I also published my third poetry collection in July of 2015. My published and unpublished work can be viewed at www.michaelpaulamram.weebly.com.
