This gripping collection of two novellas and five short stories contains a measured blend of suspense, horror, mystery and romance ... all with a Twilight Zone touch. Sheila's Marathon Year - An abused woman's mental breakdown leaves her unable to form memories except while she is running. The Money Clip - An average man picks up a lost money clip while out for a run and his life is turned upside down. Runner's High - One recovering addict discovers what running high is all about when he is caught in a blizzard. Driven - They call him Rock. Not because he looks like Rock Hudson, but because a congenital defect has left his face a mask, incapable of showing emotion. Now a case involving a murdered runner ties Detective Adam Cannaday in knots. Is the murderer a fellow runner ... maybe even his own wife? He's in for the race of his life as he chases a cold-blooded killer in a town full of runners. "Driven" will twist you around and leave you breathless. And it's only one of seven suspenseful stories in RUNNING SCARED Programmed - A distraught husband searches for his wife, who is trapped in a body that refuses to stop running. The Ghost Runners - A winner with an oversize ego learns that it is sometimes better to finish second. Cowboy Joe - To unravel the mystery behind an ultrarunning legend, a New York writer travels to the high plains of Wyoming. Once there, her story takes one strange turn after another.

Michael was born and raised in Maryland. He and his wife of thirty-five years, Kathleen, moved to Wyoming in 2010. In his leisure time, he runs and reads, both to excess. He has run numerous marathons, including Boston and, in August of 2010, completed the one hundred mile Race Across the Sky in Leadville, Colorado. The Author’s working life has been a smorgasbord of careers and occupations: UPS driver, mall cop, maintenance man, cabinetmaker, woodturner, master electrician, business owner, and more. All his life, he dreamed of being a writer. Writing was something he dabbled with in the little spare time he had while he and his wife raised their four children. With the children grown and bringing along families of their own, the urge grew to take that leap of faith into a writing career. In January 2011, the stars aligned and circumstances finally allowed Michael to pursue his passion. The result was like the bursting of a dam- the 125,000 word rough draft for Harvest of the Heart poured onto the page in just seven weeks. With the help of Bill Thompson, who has worked with such authors as Stephen King, Peter Straub and John Grisham, Michael honed his craft and his manuscript. 2012 will be an exciting year for the author. After "Running Scared," he will release "Avenging Angel," the sequel to "Harvest of the Heart," in the fall.
