Dreams of the Oregon Coast: A Michael Melville hangout

Besides being an avid but slow reader I am a FT college student at GVSU, published author & writer and former coffee shop lord. I have done a lot of pretty cool shit in my life but one thing I haven't done is become a father. This will change this coming July (2014) when I will welcome my son into my crazy world.


I am looking to make a small but meaningful mark in the literary world and make some good friends along the way. I didn't get into this business to hurt anyone. I did before I became a writer.
