Michael Wood was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado 1985, the only child of Carmen and Richard Wood. Currently a third generation military service member for over 12 years, his passion and ability to put words onto paper started in middle school. Not the most socially comfortable personality through grade-school, college, and even while pursuing his career, one day he chose to pour his range of emotions onto paper. The rest . . . is pure poetry. Michael grew up in the United States and Germany and has traveled around the world as a representative of the U.S. military. He currently lives in the Pacific Northwest.
