Aloha all. After 34.5 years in education, Michael Herr retired and went back to the second love of his life (his wife being his first love) and started writing. Having married a girl from the islands, and having traveled there for over 50 years, it was only natural that he should set his work in the Hawaiian islands. His books began as humorous/spooky story collections, and then switched over to mystery/thrillers. To date over 7,000 copies of his books, both hard copies and ebooks, have been sold and read. For a taste of the islands, get your own copies now. Mahalo.
