Chris W Michael


Chris W Michael, sometimes reffered by childhood nickname 'Waffle' and the name of his favorite fiction character Muad'Dib, was born and raised in Phoenix, AZ. Michael spent much of his time growing up writing poetry and playing music. Although music was priority, poetry always remained his passion. By eighteen Michael was playing in as many as three different projects while always working on a solo project known as 'Way of the Waffle'; despite never manifesting an album, the project maintiained a steady following. Shortly after a number of failed bands, Michael stepped away from entertaining to focus on his ongoing struggles with depression. After about three years he came back stronger than ever a vast myriad of musical projects.
Michael, also an accomplished writer, in the summer of 2016 he released 'Tales of Theiv'yah'. A free verse poem and story about the hero/teacher Darin.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Phoenix, AZ. I, like many people from the area, grew up wishing they were somewhere else. The summer heat isolated us to a degree. I spent my fair share of time playing video games and writing. I mostly read poetry because of the length. I grew up loving Greek Myths and that led me to The Iliad and Odyssey. The idea of a poem telling a story always stuck with me.
When did you first start writing?
When I was twelve. A teacher introduced me to Edgar Allen Poe, and I knew what I wanted to do with my life.
