About the author

Michael R Dougherty

Every since my hair turned white, people keep telling me that I remind them of commedian Steve Martin.

Now here's something cool. Steve Martin is also an author.

It all started for me back in high school. I was given an assignment to write a story. While thinking about what I was going to write, I stumbled upon something that introduced me to story form. It was simple.

Have a beginning, a middle and an ending -

Not exactly rocket science, but it gave me a goal. I decided to write a story about motorcycles, and even though I didn't own one, my story received a "A". In addition, I was asked to read my story outloud to the class.

Well, for me, high school was a long time ago, but I've continued writing stories. In fact, I became a Hollywood screenwriter. One of my screenplays, "The Long Ride Home" became a western movie starring country singer Randy Travis and Oscar winner, Earnest Borgnine. And since my name does not appear on the screen as a writer, if you see the movie and like it - I'll take some credit. If you don't like it - it's "their" fault.

Now I'm writing sci-fi and western ebooks.

It's fun, rewarding, and I can write and get them published online quickly.

Ok, enough about me. Now on to what you really care about.
