Tales from the writer's desk

Micah C. Brown was born in Fort Collins, Colorado and spent a good deal of his younger years growing up between there and Maine.

He’s always been a storyteller, even before he knew how to write, drawing tales of multi-wheeled busses that would carry him around town.

He learned to read young and spent much of his time with his nose in various books.

At the age of 8 he slept over at a friend’s house and they snuck downstairs late at night to Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. His consensus at the time was that it wasn’t the least bit frightening and was kind of dumb.

Since growing up and gaining much more experience, on a subsequent viewing he amended his stance and now states unequivocally that it is not kind of dumb, but it is one of the worst movies ever made, with some of the worst direction he’s ever witnessed in a movie. When he told his dad about sneaking down to watch it he reacted with proper horror, but after he told his dad that it was “kind of dumb,” his dad took him to a bookstore and bought him a copy of The Shining by Stephen King. And thus, Micah’s love affair with Stephen King’s books began in earnest. Moving from The Shining, Micah became obsessed with the John Bellairs books following Johnny Dixon. From there he was introduced to the movie Poltergeist, which got him hooked on horror movies as much as he already was to books. He voraciously consumed The Nightmare on Elm Street series, as well as a number of other horror movies that would forever affect the way he thought. Now getting ready to put his own novel out into the world, Micah hopes that you’ll all be there to help support his first venture into darkness.
