About Michael Rossi:
Michael Rossi’s new memoir, Off The Reservation: Stories I Almost Took to the Grave and Probably Should Have, is his debut book. Equal parts moving and shocking, these stranger than fiction stories are an honest account of an incredible life–not an incredibly good life, but an extremely unlikely one, and at times an utterly disastrous existence. Michael is the father of two wonderful children, and currently lives in St. Louis, Missouri with his girlfriend and her animals.
What inspires you to write?
I have always been a writer obsessed with true stories. It took some courage, but I was finally able to honestly tell my story of insanity in a way people could understand. I am continually inspired by how good it feels to do so.
Tell us about your writing process.
I like to outline my chapters first, and then focus on them one at a time. I re-write several times as I go.
What advice would you give other writers?
Make sure you write everyday. Spend the money required on an editor and cover artist. Have plenty of beta-readers, and be ready to listen to feedback.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Self publishing my book was a no-brainer!
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think the democratization of books, started by Amazon, will continue. I believe everyone will eventually read mostly ebooks.
