Meet the Author

Michael has studied American military history since his early teens ….. that would be more than 40 years! Service in the US Navy during Vietnam created in him a desire to honor those who have sacrificed for our freedoms. A decade ago, while working as a Postmaster, Michael responded to an invitation to speak on the Civil War to a group of students at a local school. The rest as he says “is history”.



Combining his public speaking with writing, Michael weaves story upon story from the very pages of our nation’s past. His consuming interest in the War Between the States has led him to publish three books on this chapter of the American saga. His first novel, Northern Colors, released in 2009 was followed in 2010 by a historical non-fiction work, The Boys of Wasioja and Wisconsin Iron, a deeply personal novel of duty and dedication.



Public speaking remains his passion as well. Michael presents the Civil War in the persona of a Union Brigadier General (though he’s known to show up in other uniforms, too). His talks are as engaging and entertaining as his writing. He considers himself a time traveler and is currently working on several projects. Just released in October of 2011 is Colors in the Air, a World War II novel about a young Bombardier in the 8th Air Force and his bride back in Minneapolis.
