Fill-in-the-Blanks Interview with Michael Hurley
Michael's answers are in green.

I am wiser than I once was, not as wise as I hope to be.

I love peanut butter because it’s delicious and simple and cheap and good for me, and there are not many things in life that are all that.

In my spare time I like to walk or ride a bike while I think long thoughts.

All is vanity.

Sometimes I wish I were young again, but without the stupidity.

My favourite shoes are Clark’s Treks because they’re built for comfort and they’re built to last.

A man who can cook can always find work.

I have never been to Spain, but I kinda like the music.

When I'm bored, I daydream.

My first love was the piano.

Jazz and blues are the bomb.

Books give me what I need most.

Author Bio - Michael Hurley

Michael C. HurleyMichael Hurley and his wife Susan live near Charleston, South Carolina. Born and raised in Baltimore, Michael holds a degree in English from the University of Maryland and law from St. Louis University.

The Prodigal, Michael’s debut novel from Ragbagger Press, received the Somerset Prize for mainstream fiction and numerous accolades in the trade press, including Publishers Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, ForeWord Reviews, BookTrib, Chanticleer Reviews, and IndieReader. It is currently in development for a feature film by producer Diane Sillan Isaacs. Michael’s second novel, The Vineyard, is due to be released by Ragbagger Press in December 2014.

Michael’s first book, Letters from the Woods, is a collection of wilderness-themed essays published by Ragbagger Press in 2005. It was shortlisted for Book of the Year by ForeWord magazine. In 2009, Michael embarked on a two-year, 2,200 mile solo sailing voyage that ended with the loss of his 32-foot sloop, the Gypsy Moon, in the Windward Passage between Cuba and Haiti in 2012. That voyage and the experiences that inspired him to set sail became the subject of his memoir, Once Upon A Gypsy Moon, published in 2013 by Hachette Book Group.

When he is not writing, Michael enjoys reading and relaxing with Susan on the porch of their rambling, one-hundred-year-old house. His fondest pastimes are ocean sailing, playing piano and classical guitar, cooking, and keeping up with an energetic Irish terrier, Frodo Baggins.
