About OregonMike98 (Michael Melville)

I am 35, a novelist,college student, former successful coffee lord, and an uncle. I published my first novel Running Northwest 3 years ago and I am currently hard at work on my second novel All The Roads Home. I like traveling and seeing new places generally with my dog when possible. I consider the Oregon coast and Florida my home as much and maybe more then Michigan where I was born and currently live. I have a 13 year old dog named Harley who is being kept from me by my psychotic ex. I am in a relationship with an amazing woman named Stacey who is showing a level of love I never knew existed. We are soon expecting our first child together, a boy, in July 2014. View all posts by OregonMike98 (Michael Melville)
