Meet the Author

Trying to figure out when I started writing is like trying to decide when I started walking. The stories have always been there, rummaging around in my mind. Some went on paper. Most didn’t. I wrote my first novel when I was 22. Thankfully, I left it to the dustbin of history where it shall always remain.Imagine the grin, yes, it was that bad.As for influences on my latest story, The Island, that one has been up there banging away in my head for a long time. Parts of it were told at bedtime. Though honestly, those who heard the parts wouldn't recognize them in the story. By the time we get to the second book in this series, they will find some recognizable moments. They'll also probably be upset that the adventure turned into something of a horror story.Ahh, well, most of them are old enough now to read it for what it is.I grew up in North Carolina, which is why part of the story is set there. I’ve been to exotic parts of the world, many countries, and most states. None of them I know as well as the one I called home for most of my life. It makes it easy to write about it, and the people in it.I hope you enjoy the stories.MS

    Best New Series!

    When thinking about ordering this, I almost didn't. A few of the reviews said it wasn't great.
    DON'T take anyone's word. Read it.
    I will say the first book was slightly slower and very descriptive. (@ times too much so) But the first book was necessary, even with the slow parts, to paint the background for this tale.
    The ever popular "End of Days" has a new twist! A fresh new idea on an old theme.
    I am a very picky reader and think I would rate this up there with Steven Kings earlier works! Thanks Michael for this great series...keep writing and I will keep reading!!!!!!!!!

    Chilling and epic! This is the best one yet!!! The writer did an
    excellent job of engaging me and terrifying me at the same time. I
    could literally feel the fear inside of the boat. I can not wait for
    further installments!!!

    Thrilling

    This is turning out to be one of the best series I've read. It has everything I like in a book, action, suspense, great characters and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I must now raise this story up to 5 stars, something I rarely do. Now moving on with Book 4.

    The Island

    Yep, liking this series alot! Just picked up installment number 4. I give this 4 stars, not 5, but only because these need further editing. Keep up the good work Mr. Stark!

    Well written but has gotten too creepy, gory for me. If you like suspenseful horror this is for you.

    Suspense at it's best!

    Like the first two installments of "The Island" series, this one gets the "rubber on the road" and keeps you riveted throughout the action. No seriously surprising plot twists here, but solid, spooky entertainment protrayed in a plausible plot line. The characters remain alive and, for the most part, believable. This is about as good as suspense gets.

    Leaves you anxious for the next installment

    The author eloquently blends details that framed an image in my mind with plausible events that left me thinking "I can see this happening." After finishing each book in the series I've spent time recalling the story line, the actions (and reactions) of the characters, and have wondered what I would do if I found myself in the same sequence of events. An engaging story and one I highly recommend. Looking forward to the next installment.

    Exceptional Series!

    I grabbed the series because the first three were available free, and paid for the last two before beginning to read. I am not disappointed!

    This part brings creatures from folklore to life, and brings a new world to life... or maybe it puts the current world to death... or something in between.Great read! Read the series in order as one entire book, and you'll receive a profound story that promises continued entertainment!

    Good story

    Good series though I'm not much into monsters. I would have preferred a more realistic view of the world going to "crap." Very good writing; it kept me interested to the conclusion.

    To anyone beginning this read, read books 1 and 2 also and keep on going! It is well worth it. I would highly recommend this series, which, hopefully, will be continued in the near future.

    Loved the book from part one to final chapters!

    Not avail in print since I wanted to share it with some friends. I emailed the author and he is working on a print version......
    I would love to see more from him. Great lead character who also has a sense of humor. Don't let the cover mislead you its not about dragons!
