Comments:

Michael Havelin is not retired and now works as a freelance sign language interpreter in Western North Carolina. These days, I'm writing fiction, both short stories and novels. You can find them through Google & Amazon. Most recent book, "Mystery Mastery - Creating a Believable Mystery Novel," is now available thru amazon & directly from Michael. I'm now teaching classes & workshops based on "Mystery Mastery."

Over the years, I've been a professional musician (The Bougalieu, The Old Pros, Cacti Delicti, No Small Tornado), teacher, computer consultant, sign language interpreter, professional filmmaker & photographer, author of articles and books, publisher (the now defunct "Shooter's Rag: The Practical Gazette for Silver and Digital Photographers" and "Dialed In!" a national motorcycle roadracing newspaper), editor, woodworker, and have even practiced law. I am googleable.

I written/published seven mystery novels. Search for Michael Havelin's books at Amazon.

School Story:

Best teachers for me were Mrs. Beale (English), Ms. Beimler (Spanish), and Mrs Matilda Smith (Biology). I have always been a writer and enjoyed working with languages. I've worked in Panama (in English though I lived in Spanish), and still work as a sign language interpreter. Mrs Smith taught me about research, though not on purpose.

Tried to earn a living with nature photography during the late 1980s. Ha! Ended up starting a nature photography magazine and writing two books on photo technique.
