Michael R. Mennenga (men-en-gay) began writing in the late 1980’s. He spent several years submitting manuscripts, talking with publishers / agents, and learning the ins and outs of the ever changing publishing industry. Even though he remained unpublished, he had become a proficient writer and by the end of 1995 he had written 2 young adult books, 1 novel, and had 9 other works in various stages of production. In 1996 he turned his attentions to writing on the Internet. In 1998 he joined a developing writing community and was soon asked to become part of the staff. Working with members, creating interesting assignments, and developing writing lessons he became a valuable part of the community. After only one year as a staff member he was asked to become its executive editor - overseeing all operations of the growing community. During this time the site received recognition from Writers Digest and Forbes Publishing before the release of his first book - Zac and the Valley of the Dragons – (published on Xlibris Press) forced his resignation as editor in late 1999. His next book – Mistress of the Dragon – (Published AmErica House) was released in 2001.
