Meet SPP Mondays: Michael Cieslak

Michael Cieslak is a lifetime reader and writer of horror, mystery, and speculative fiction. A native of Detroit, he still lives within 500 yards of the city with his wife and their two dogs Tesla and Titus. The house is covered in Halloween decorations in October and dragons the rest of the year. He is an officer in the Great Lakes Association of Horror Writers. His works have appeared in a number of collections including DOA: Extreme Horror, Dead Science, Vicious Verses and Reanimated Rhymes, the GLAHW anthologies, and Alter Egos Vol 1. He is the current Literature Track Head for Penguicon. Michaels most recent endeavor is the Dragons Roost Press imprint which will be publishing its first anthology Desolation, 21 Tales for Tails in 2014.  A portion of the proceeds of each sale of Desolation will benefit the Last Day Dog Rescue organization.

Michael will be attending Penguicon from May 2nd - 4th at the Westin in Southfield, MI where he'll be participating in five panels (maybe more).
He has recently opened an Etsy store ( specializing in creepy jewelry and home items.
