Frederick Michaels writes in retirement from his home in Indianapolis, Indiana. His poetry has appeared in Flying Island, So It Goes Literary Journal, The Boston Poetry Journal, Branches magazine and Lone Stars magazine, among others. A number of his poems are included in the anthologies Reckless Writing 2012 and 2013 (from Chatter House Press, Indianapolis, IN) and Naturally Yours (edited by Stacy Savage and Kathy Chaffin Gerstorff). His first collection of poems, Potholes In The Universe, is in the process of being published by Chatter House Press, Indianapolis, IN. Though an engineer by training, Michaels has always been pulled to the side of the arts by his love for words. He particularly enjoys the challenge poets have to convey both texture and meaning using words, without succumbing to maudlin, ugly or overly ebullient emotions. He would say that the words are always there. They just need to be properly chosen, then put in the proper order.
