Michael is the president of the Boulder Writers’ Workshop and an advisory board member. He was born and raised in a quintessential American small town on the shores of Lake Michigan. He has worked for more than three decades with IBM in various management and leadership positions.
His book, Waiting for the Evening Train, set in 1962, is about a Negro doctor named Prosper Langford who flees Mississippi after his family is murdered by the Ku Klux Klan. He lands in a northern Wisconsin city where he becomes the mortician at the Carmichale House, a Private Home and Funeral Parlor run by the indomitable Dottie Carmichael. Angry at God, he reinvents himself as a euthanizing Doctor of Death, until a personal tragedy forces him to confront his past.
The Literary Salon is fashioned after the great salons of Paris in the Eighteenth Century. Members talk about their writing successes and challenges, solicit advice, share their experiences and keep each other up-to-date on trends. All genres and experience levels are welcome.
