Travels with Michael



Vikings at Dino’s (May, 2016) (Amazon) — Michael Henderson just wants to eat his cheeseburger in peace. A freelance coder, his one luxury is his daily bike ride to one of his favorite lunch spots. (When you’re small for your age, the cops get nervous when they see you behind the wheel.) So why did the gang of Vikings have to come in and trash Dino’s, his favorite burger joint? How did they get the longship into the parking lot? How did they get the longship out of the parking lot?  Why are they following him from one restaurant to the next?  And why is the young lady with the blonde hair and dark eyebrows shooting at him?

“Dino’s is the first Diner I have ever regretted not visiting. This book is pure fun, but sneaky smart, too!” — Elizabeth Scalia (The Anchoress)

“…dry-humored prose that had me laughing out loud every couple of pages.” — Paul @ Amazon

“…an excellent novel that fired on all cylinders.” — Jeff Miller @ The Curt Jester

“…an excellent story teller…” — Margaret Rose Realy @ Amazon

Very Truly Run After (March, 2018) (Amazon) — A black-clad intruder. An ambush on the way to philosophy class. A full tackle on the way home from Sunday dinner. As a Traveler, Michael Henderson is better than most at running away from trouble—an important skill when the people who want a piece of you mean it literally. But what do you when your troubles can Travel after you? Turns out, it’s all in where you run to. A light tale of manners, steam, squirrels, and romance, to say nothing of Maundelson’s Finest Patented Engineer’s Biscuits.

“Through Darkest Zymurgia! is what you’d get if you crossed P.G. Wodehouse with H. Rider Haggard and sprinkled a generous dose of Douglas Adams over the whole.” — Julie Davis @ Happy Catholic.
