Michael Purcell lives in the beautiful Hudson Valley region of upstate New York. Having an Assossiates degree in Environmental Studies, he has strong feelings about nature and our planet. You will find these feelings in some of his poetry.
He began by writing songs for his band in NYC as a teenager, and grew into writing poetry and later short stories and now novels.
An avid reader of Horror and Fantasy writng, he quickly became a fan of writers such as Dean Koontz and Stephen King. His short stories and novels are in that gender as he is drawn to it as a moth to a flame.
On a persoanl note: I’m very down to earth, and choose love and friendship before materialistic gains,(not that they are not important). I am a true romantic, and believe in the magic of love…even love at first sight is a notion I still entertain. I am a great animal lover, but have not had a new pet since my beloved baby beagle died, (that was his name by the way). I like the city as much as I do the country, but there is much to be said for being able to have a cup of coffee in the morning, outside watching the sunrise with no horns or sirens blowing. I have found writing and drawing, to be a welcome faucet in which I could let out internal thoughts and emotions. Which could not possibly be released with the same temperament, if I were to just talk to someone. I have recently become rather obsessed with writing short stories and Novels. I having been a long time fan of Dean Koontz and Stephen King. I find I am drawn to writing Horror and fantasy stories. I have two story finished, and over 4 stories started, with over a dozen more plots outlined waiting to be but to paper. Want to know more please ask.
