Michael Edwards

Biography

Born in Medina, raised in Peninsula township which lies between Bath, Ohio and Cuyaghoa Falls, Ohio. Michael Edwards is an author of crime fiction, sci-fi, and various other genres. He lives with his younger brother and ailing mother. And enjoys reading a copious amount of fiction and non-fiction.

I also review comics and prose. Prose takes longer to read so bare with me. I want to make sure I have the full grasp of what I am reading before I review it.

Moved to Barberton, Ohio last year -- still writing away!
