ABOUT MICAH HOUSE

MICAH HOUSE was born in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and grew up in a large southern family full of all kinds of characters he draws from often in his writing.  He moved to Birmingham, Alabama in 1997 and spent many years as a business owner and magazine columnist while writing short stories.  Now solely devoted to writing novels, Micah is developing a fanbase who appreciates his unique southern style of storytelling.

"It is difficult for me to pick a "favorite" author, however, there are several who appeal to me and helped shape my writing style.  Richard Matheson comes immediately to mind.  He successfully creates a setting you can thoroughly understand even if it is out of the ordinary.  Then when he tosses his twists and turns at you, you might bee caught off guard but not lost.  I also love Alice Walker for her ability to pull her characters off the written page and make them real human beings to you.  I try to do that with my writing.  I want you to feel as if you truly know my character, you might even feel as if you are my character.  I learned this from Alice Walker.  I also adore Toni Morrison for her skill at creating deeply flawed characters you still relate to because you can fully understand what life did to flaw them.  Lastly, for simply the mystery sake of it, I love Jeffrey Deaver books.  I am very good at figuring out whodunnits yet I almost never figure out his.

 

As far as my personal writing style goes, I write the way I think.  I prefer authors who get to the point.  I do not need 3 pages describing the tapestry on the wall when I am reading a book.  Though I want well fleshed out characters and descriptive settings I can picture in my mind, I cannot stand a slow paced novel.  Therefore my writing style, (I've been told and hope is true for everyone) connects you emotionally to the characters quickly and keeps a steady pace of action, humor, and emotion so that readers do not lose interest before the story is told.  If my interest isn't grabbed within three chapters, I am finished reading that book.  So I do my very best to write this way as well.  I write for people who love to read but have too little time to invest in a story it takes forever to get to."

 

 

Micah's novel series, The Blanchard Witches is available on Amazon, Kindle, Walmart, Barnes and Noble, Goodreads, Books-A-Million, and other retail stores.

 

THE BLANCHARD WITCHES OF DAIHMLER COUNTY is the first in the series, introducing fans to The Blanchard family.  The deeply close-knit southern family wield a great deal of power as witches, though they use their gifts to make the world a better place in whatever little ways they can.  However, danger always seems to find them, forcing the resourceful family to combine their skills, their love for one another, and sometimes their witty sense of humor to combat whatever comes their way.
