Saving Peg Leg is Michael’s first book he has published. Inspired by true events, Michael used many details provided by Jane, the main character, who is a neighbor and friend, in an interview in writing this story. Michael recently received a Master’s degree from Nova Southeastern University. There he learned and participated in research based learning. Research also contributed to the story’s plot. He plans to continue writing other stories in the future.
