About the author:
Michael Melville was born and raised outside of Grand Rapids Michigan, graduating from Grandville High school in 1998. In 2002, he moved to Portland Oregon and then spent several years living in the Pacific Northwest and northern Idaho. He spent a large portion of his time traveling up and down the Oregon coast often with his dog at his side. That coastline, the small towns, and the people he met and saw as well as the abundant nature and geography have inspired and become a part of him. Michael now considers the Oregon coast his second home even while currently living in Michigan and goes back as often as he can and hopes to move there permanently again soon.
He has always tried to live his life on his own terms, to be different and not settle and tries his best to take the road less traveled while seeking his own version of happiness. More often than not, his gut drives his life and he does what he feels is right, and rarely what others say. This inner spirit and attitude have served him well giving him success in different fields, the courage to choose writing as a career and search for more adventures in life.
Michael while currently living in Michigan is attending Grand Valley State University and earning a BA in Writing and focusing on creative writing. He is married and a proud father to a very busy 2 1/2-year-old by.
