J. Michael Blumer is a long time story teller who finally found time to become a writer thanks to encouragement from his family. Long ago, his children dubbed him an “alternative life form” because of his “creative” parenting techniques, such as making them sing their arguments. He’s married to a second grade school teacher which explains why his marriage has lasted so long. His wife knows just how to handle him. Mike lives in Stillwater, Minnesota with his wife Jane, and fond memories of their golden retriever, Nova.
