Michael Moreau

Publisher info

Writing a bio of myself is difficult because I often feel as if I don’t really know who I am. I am a collection of characters and places that have touched me as I have traveled down the (often bumpy) road of life.

There’s only been one constant thing about me that truly feels like “me” and that is the desire to create. Whether it’s writing, photography, filmmaking costume & prop design, or one of the other couple of dozen things that I like to do I just can’t stop creating. I’m drawn to it more than any other pursuit in life.

Just like everything else about me my influences are a little all over the board. I would say that I admire and often imitate Douglas Adams’ sense of humor, but lots of my works are also in the simple and elegant style of Andre Norton fused with some of the gritty details of writers like Hal Colbatch or Larry Niven.

I don’t write as a career, I know that during my lifetime I will likely never make any real money from my writing but I do it because I have stories to tell. All that I hope from my work is that people enjoy it. A quick fan letter is my reward for what I do.

Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
Frederick Pohl, Larry Niven, Hal Colbatch, Andre Norton, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H.G. Wells
What inspires you?
Anything and everything. Television, movies, musical lyrics, random words that pop into my head (interesting name for character, place, or object most of the time). All around me there is a world filled with the creations of talented people who built on the creativity of those who came before them. I just try to leave my own mark on that process.
