Today we will be interviewing Michael Hanson. Michael is the son of a U.S. Army Sergeant and a Nurse, was born in Potsdam, NY, amidst the icy climes of New York State’s Northcountry. He spent the first ten years of his life as an Army Brat, one of five, living in such disparate locales as: Taipei, Taiwan; Munich, Germany; Camp Drum, NY; and Fort Huachuca, AZ, before finally settling down in his mother’s home town of Massena, NY. He began writing his first poems and short stories at the age of 15. He graduated from Massena Central High School and spent a short stint in the U.S. Air Force. Michael went on to become a Film Production major at Syracuse University, and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from the Newhouse School of Public Communications in 1989. Michael created, and co-wrote, the first two books in the Sha’Daa shared-world anthology series (Sha’Daa: Tales of The Apocalypse” and “Sha’Daa: Last Call” both published by Altered Dimensions Press). He is currently working with several new authors on the next two volumes in this series, “Sha’Daa: Pawns” and “Sha’Daa: Catechism.” He also has two collections of poetry in print (“Autumn Blush” published by YaYe Books and “Jubilant Whispers” published by Diminuendo Press). His short story “The Register” has been accepted for publication in the 2011 anthology LAWYERS IN HELL, for Janet E. Morris’s recently resurrected Heroes in Hell (HIH) shared-world anthology series. Michael is currently writing more stories for future HIH volumes. Michael has written a collection of poetry for children, titled "The Great Soap Rebellion" which is currently being illustrated for future publication. Michael is also the Founder of the international writers club, THE FICTIONEERS, a non-profit organization created in 2007 to encourage the writing of sci fi, fantasy, and horror, and the creative interaction of writers. Michael is a Staff Editor at The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers.
