About Michael Kozlowski

Michael A. Kozlowski lives in a suburb of Detroit, MI with his very patient and understanding wife, his two sons, two spoiled dogs and an indifferent cat. Only his mother calls him Michael, but he chooses to use the full name for his books because he thinks it makes him sound grown up when, in reality, he's still just a kid making up stories.


Review by: Weston Ochse on Sep. 18, 2011 :
Michael Kozlowski is a promising newcomer whose grasp of situational horror left me nodding with the accuracy of his poignant and homey narratives. This is great stuff. I want more.

Review by: Kate Monroe on Aug. 23, 2011 :
My cursor hovered between 4* and 5* for a while, but in the end I couldn't bring myself to give this title anything but 5*. I couldn't set my proofreader's critical gaze aside, and the few insignificant typos and misspellings that I spotted are the only reasons why I struggled initially to give this 5*.

However, the most important fact is that the storylines themselves are superbly crafted, evoking both vivid imagery, and a very acute sense of the fears that plague people, haunting their both their waking thoughts and their unconscious minds. The writer shows a skilled understanding of exactly what it is that frightens people - 'Under My Bed' being the perfect example of that - and I found myself greatly enjoying all of the stories, chuckling away to myself and nodding along in agreement before the inevitable twist in the tale catches you off-guard and chills you to the core.

My personal favourite was, I think, 'The Block' - I think perhaps the infamous curse of the writer's block is the thing that frightens me above all else. And again on a personal note, I loved the little bits of Polish heritage woven throughout - an insight into the author, and something I could really identify with as the granddaughter of a Polish immigrant.

A cracking read, and I loved the author's evident disdain for happy endings! Thoroughly recommended.
