Welcome to Journeys and Life. A blog by Michael Melville


My Name is Michael Melville, I am 36, a former business owner, currently a senior at Grand Valley State University and proud father of an amazing little 5 month old little boy. I am now trying to make my mark in some small but noticeable way as an author and writer. Currently I am wasting away in Michigan and miss the Oregon coast more than words can ever explain.

I published two works so far in my career. The 1st was Running Northwest; a romance novel about a single father raising his adopted son alone on the Oregon Coast. The 2nd is Christmas Senses which is a short story about a man stricken with blindness and how he experiences Christmas with his family in his own unique way.

I blog as often as possible about subjects as varying and important to me as Travel, movies, relationships, parenting, books and writing and other thoughts and subjects. Keep a lookout for new things coming in the next few months in addition to my newest book such as my as my all new website devoted solely to my books and writing and also a 2 film projects which I am involved in as talent.


All the Best

Michael Melville
