I'm Paul Michel, a writer and musician in Seattle, Washington. On this site you can learn about me, my writing (short stories. novels, essays, songs) and the music I perform sometimes. I blogged here once a lot, and may again some day, but doesn't each vanished blog make the sun shine just that much brighter? Thank you for your interest. I hope to see you soon.

My first novel, Houdini Pie, is available in paperback and on Kindle and other e-formats
