I’m a writer with a background in music and acting. I love performing but find the blank page to be the greatest challenge. Readers say I bring an unflinching honesty to the subjects I write about. I’m currently writing a memoir, King of the Middle, for The Writing Thing Press.
Raised in Tennessee, Michael was drawn to the creativity of the West Coast. He landed in Seattle with good timing during the 90s grunge scene. Michael fronted a band in that highly creative environment, then felt called to Los Angeles. Michael quickly joined the acting community and began chasing roles. He fell in love with writing quite by accident. Arresting Grace, Michael’s debut memoir, impressed readers with its candid look at a public fall. He’s the author of four books.
I’m drawn to subjects far and wide. I’ve written a memoir, a psychological crime drama, an action thriller, and a collection of forward-looking short stories. Currently, I’m writing a memoir, King of the Middle, to be published by The Writing Thing Press.

I’ve lived in LA longer than anywhere else. The city has many sides, many cultures, and more than a few surprises. Living in a world city will challenge your perspective daily. – MJG
