My name is Michael and I've never seen the Pacific Ocean, except in the very real nightmares I've been having for the past two months! I come from Indiana and received my B.A. in English and Creative Writing from Indiana University. Aside from book stuff I love walking around wooded areas, imitating heron sounds and sitting in cafes for long periods of time. I think opossums are the perfect animal, I move mountains so as not to be late to Board Game Night™, and over the years I've slowly perfected the art of transforming into a large, semi-sentient lizard.
