I first became aware of this author when I got a book off of Amazon, yes I love Amazon for my Kindle!! Amazon carries everything and carries Michael‘s line of books. I bought the book, Brood X, back in October 2014. It was the beginning of his sci-fi series stated as, ‘A Firsthand Account of the Great Cicada Invasion.’ It had appealed to me as I am a retired labor nurse and it mentioned vaguely about the biblical aspect about locust simile. I was totally off the wall when I read this as I was not prepared. Michael writes in great detail and in real world time. He makes you feel like you can step into the story and just go with it. I didn’t want to be a part of that one- I hate BUGS. However, the writing was excellent.
Since then, Michael has branched out and I forgive him as I now want to read the other areas as I do love paranormal stories, etc.

I loved this book and when I received a free copy- the publisher, Red Feather Publishing , sent the book along with pencil and pad. The uniqueness of these is what caught my attention. The pencil was in the shape of a witches broomstick!! The pad of paper in the shape of a detective badge. These little souveners will be in my desk and needless to say, I will remember the book.
