unpublished) fiction, read, and go to the gym. He also enjoys spending
time with his wife, Mary, and their four beautiful felines.

doodling with oil paints with his left hand. Mike's current favorite things
include dabbling with theoretical and particle physics, martial arts training,
gambling, securities prospecting, and, of course, sleeping.
