Welcome to the official website of Author MM, aka Michael Meisberger, where fantastic landscapes and cultures form the background for intricately detailed stories of good versus evil. His unique, smooth-flowing style has piqued the interest of readers looking for escape with vampire fiction, challenging motivational essays, novels or a quick read short story.
Current News:I am working on a fantasy adventure titled Rangers Keep as well as just released my cience fiction novel titled Parabellum.
A little about me:
I was, and still am, addicted to reading. When I was young, I liked to read fantasy and Sci Fi. I devoured entire series as fast as publishers could print them. Nonetheless, I never really had a favorite author. Most writers had their own style or way of telling the story, and I enjoyed that. Then, out of the blue, I stopped reading. I guess my appetite had been satiated.
It was then, that the sinister urge hit me to begin a story of my own. I have never considered myself a writer. Every teacher, instructor, or professor, I ever came into contact with was convinced I would never be a writer. My style was "unacceptable," my grammar incorrect, my spelling horrid, and my story development deplorable. I don't think I ever received a mark above a "C" in any English / Writing Comp. class. And trust me when I tell you I have taken more than a few writing intensive courses!
I earned a baccalaureate degree with a 3.0 gpa and held over a 3.7gpa in my major despite a learning disorder and ADHD. Even so, the English department professors told me I would never be a writer / published author. But then again, these same types of people, university professors that is, flunked Einstein out of school.
Interestingly, most of the non-educators that were brave enough to read my short stories thoroughly enjoyed them and complimented me on them time and time again. I was receiving mixed signals! I was also receiving very good feedback from those kind enough to read my work and provide comment outside of the academic community.
One day I came to the sudden revelation: Professors and critics don't buy books, the masses do.
If I was being well received by those reading my essays and stories for enjoyment, and not for grammatically correct sentence structure, why not put my words into a novel and let the people decide? I wanted to write my vampire slayer story. I began to pen my first novel, Birthright... Slayer. Being a Van Helsing fan from way back, I decided to pen from the slayer's point of view.
