Collection: Michael R. Stern

Michael Stern has said that he would like to be remembered as a great storyteller. “I’ve been telling stories since childhood. I still love a good story, no matter the source.” Since he began writing as a career later in life, he has learned how difficult good writing can be, and strives to improve his grasp of the nuance of powerful storytelling. “Many good writers ply their trade, but few are great. Many good writers are financially successful because they write stories that captivate an audience at the right time. Great writers transcend time, at least in part because they speak to the human condition regardless of time or location. They create memorable characters, thrust them into conflicts internal and external, and take the reader to emotional attachment found only in a well-structured story.”
