Show and Tell Storytellers' Video Featuring... ME!

I've been blessed by many creative friends over the years, and am married to an extremely creative woman. These creatives are blessed with multitudinous abilities way above my own. They write, do calligraphy, draw, make art, make music, and come up with idea after idea. 

One of my newest creative friends is Jesse Bray. We met at church last year, and instantly connected. Jesse fits in with the above definition of a creative: he's a wonderful artist, animator, designer, videographer, storyteller and musician. And boy, is he ever full of ideas! (If you want to know more about Jesse and his work, you can find him HERE)

We have a couple of projects in the works--which we hope to get to once Jesse's current project stops being so time-consuming. But in the interim, Jesse decided it might be fun to video me talking about storytelling. So, here I am, warts and all. If you have a spare 7 or so minutes, I'd be honored if you'd give this a listen and tell me what you think.


  1. Great video. I didn't realize that you have been writing so long. Loved the Pullman series too.

  2. How nice to hear your voice, Michael, and get to know you better. I'd have been a nervous wreck on camera, but you're a natural. Your accent isn't as strong as I expected. I love the Pullman trilogy! Such gorgeous writing.

    Like Natalie, I didn't realize you'd been writing for 25 years. I've been writing much longer, but didn't start taking it seriously until ten years ago.


Youse got something to say? Well, say it then. (The Don and I will shoot you... a personal reply, that is. But if we can't find your e-mail, we'll just reply in the comment box.)
