You can call me Mike

I write fiction, teach authors marketing, and help businesses connect with customers. More than anything, I believe in the power of story. We all have a story to tell, and when we finally tell that story, amazing things begin to happen.

On this site, I share tips, book recommendations, and general advice on creativity and strategy. Whether it’s a book that’s dying to come out, a product or service that will make peoples’ lives better, or a creative enterprise that will change the way people think about the world, I want to help you tell your story and bring your ideas to life.

I love to bring ideas to life…

Through the art of narrative and poetry.
I publish my work through a small publishing company I’ve founded called Kalmia Books, and sometimes share poetry on social media.

By helping others share their own stories.
I’ve worked with authors from all over the world and have created a course called Writing Inbound on what I’ve learned.


And by communicating the stories of great products and services.
Through my consultancy, Solstice House Media, I help businesses, non-profits, and authors tell their brand stories, connect with customers, and grow their products and services.


Enough about me. What about you?
