Mike Owens, author of The End of Free Will and The Threshold will appear at Coastal Crime Fest 3 on March 19 to speak about the craft of managing psychic distance in your writing.
Mike was born in a small town in North Carolina, Winston-Salem being the closest identifiable landmark. He claims to bleed Tar Heel blue, having received both his undergraduate and medical degrees from UNC Chapel Hill. He topped off his educational efforts with an MFA in Creative Writing from Old Dominion in 2011. Mike lives in Norfolk with his wife, Marilyn, and their dog, Molly, a highly critical 11-year old Weimaraner. His written works explore the often-contentious interaction between medical science and medical ethics.
