Michael Nothguoh


Writing is my hobby, something I've always done. Somewhere up on a closet shelf there's a box full of old 5-1/4 inch and 3-1/2 inch floppies as well as other typed and hand-written stuff, mostly unpublishable. But I think of that box as being filled with thousands of hours of practice.

By day I work for the government. By night, I putter around the house, read a LOT of different stuff and try not to trip over one or another of our three dogs. My wife and I enjoy evenings at home together, occasionally struggling with the dogs over space on our sofa.

I dedicate my writing to my wife, who is my most steadfast fan, and to my children and grandchildren in the hope that they will someday read my stuff.

Smashwords book reviews by Michael Nothguoh

  • How to Get a Cheap Book Cover on Nov. 20, 2012

    Before reading this informative book, I had no idea where to go or how to get started in creating cover art for my stories. Years ago I used MS Publisher a little and took a class to learn how to use Photoshop. The author's clear explanations and cogent advice gave me the courage to dust off those old skills and create my own cover art. Exactly what I was looking for!
