Michael has since published Future Perfect, a Science Fiction novel and local bestseller. He was also an early pioneer in publishing short stories over the internet including the Solar Winds of Change, The Adventure of the Moonstone and A Land to Call Our Own. His latest novel, The Kennedy Effect, weaves the story of President Kennedy with the mathematical possibility of parallel realities.
