Hello, my name is Michael Winston and I write historical fiction novels. In addition to writing I am also an artist and have many other interests, from fossil hunting to cooking to bird watching. Being an army brat we moved every three years, so I was fortunate enough to experience various lands and cultures from an early age. I joined the US Navy as a young man and served aboard the Destroyer Escort, USS Cromwell (DE 1014) and spent three winters sailing the Caribbean and one winter in the North Atlantic and Mediterranean.
I am a product of the U.S. Navy. It all started in my sophomore year of high school when a classmate did a presentation on the service academies. It didn't hurt that I was dating a future West Point cadet, either. After visiting USMA I realized I wanted to served my country but not in the Army. I ordered and read the USNA catalog and believed every word.
Be sure to reserve your room in Dayton and pay your dues. Remember that all of your meals ARE included in your conference fees this year.
Here's the details. I'll have updates soon.
