Mr. Michael Lewis lives in a town called Biabou, in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, a multi-island state in the Caribbean. He works as an Information Technology teacher at the Georgetown Secondary School, in Georgetown, St. Vincent. When he is not teaching, he enjoys spending time with family and friends, working on home-improvement projects, spending time outdoors enjoying God's beautiful creation, and writing. He has learned a number of lessons in life, one of which is to be patient. His mother always quoted the old proverb "Rome wasn't built in a day." That is one important principle he has adopted in his day-to-day life. Michael has surrendered his single life to Christ. He believes that "all things work together for good to them that love the Lord." He plans to continue to write on social and moral issues, based on the principles found in the Scriptures.
What prompted you to write your first book?
My first book, Dating Delilah, was born out of an eighteen-month long terrible affair I had with a married woman. Upon being delivered from this hellish experience, through divine intervention I believe, I decided that there was something good that could come out of it. I wanted to share the experiences I had throughout this period of time, with a view towards helping others to avoid the pitfalls of adultery. The inspiration really came from Dr. Robert Schuller, who on his Hour of Power television program, often talked about turning one’s scars into stars. I then decided to turn my scar of adultery into a star that could light the way for anyone who might be tempted to commit this sin, or for those who might be already trapped in it and are seeking desperately to get out.
When did you discover your writing talent?
In my early teen years, my essays in high school came in for much praise from my teachers. I particularly remember an English Language teacher I had in grade 9, who would read my essays in front of the class, and commented on how well-written they were. It was then that I discovered my talent for writing. That experience really motivated me, and since then I have had a passion for writing, although I am only now getting into it on a professional basis.
This is a real-life account of pain and suffering the author experienced in an eighteen-month-long affair with a married seductress. He became captivated, trapped by this evil woman. It was an obsession that possessed him. However, when he exercised his faith and cried out unto his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, he received deliverance, and is now enjoying peace like he never knew before.
