My Journey Through Darkness

This is my autobiography which I completed in January 2012. It has been published on Amazon's Kindle bookstore as an e-book. It mainly consists of my journal entries over a few years while I was struggling with drug-addiction. My intention in writing and publishing this book, is not only to give hope to those in a similar situation, but to also educate people who may be dealing with an addict.

Mich's Musings

I recently started a blog in an effort to keep the creative writing skills up to scratch. This is simply some light reading about some of the ups and downs of my life. I try to keep it on the funny side, but now and then there is some heavier tales.
