Hello, my name is Michael Lewis Collins, but most people call me Mike. I was born in a hospital a while ago in Baltimore, Maryland. I don’t remember; I was very young. My parents are Mary Louise Fritz Collins and Gerald Lewis Collins. I have an older brother named Joseph Martin Collins who lives in Dundalk, Maryland and an older sister named Susan Anne Collins in Barberton, Ohio. I went to Bear Creek elementary in Dundalk for two years. Lakemore Elementary for one year. Stafford Elementary in Maple Heights, Ohio for through to the sixth grade. One year at Milkovich Middle School in Maple Heights, Ohio and one year in Streetsboro Junior Highschool. One year at Streetsboro Highschool and the final three at Central-Hower Highschool in Akron, Ohio. So, I attended a lot of schools. I have an associate degree from Southern Ohio College and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Phoenix. Most of my education is from work. I worked for The R.C.A. Rubber company in Akron, Ohio for five years as an assistant to the office manager. Then ten years with The Little Tikes company on the production line (I never want to see another cozy coupe again). After a few failures in sales (I am NO salesmen) I currently work for LaserShip Delivery Systems. I currently live in the Village of Lakemore in Summit County in Ohio. The village is just south of Akron, Ohio one side of Springfield Lake. The lake pictures on the site are of Springfield Lake. I Don't consider myself to be a writer (anyone who reads my stories will agree) I consider myself a teller of tales. My goal is to work on my story writing by posting those stories here on my site. I also want to promote my books as a finish them. Thank you for your time and patience.
