By day, Michael Fortuna, a graduate of the University of Florida, is a mild-mannered reporter for The Villages Daily Sun in the middle of Florida, where his articles have won several awards in the state’s press association’s contests, including in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007 for the Florida Society of News Editors and in 2006 for the Society of Professional Journalists Florida Pro Chapter’s Sunshine State Awards. By night, he uses his powers of writing to create fictional worlds in contemporary and science fiction/fantasy realms, but none of the stories has been published. Yet. He’s also got a comic book universe rolling around in his head that may see the light of day. He is married to Kristin, a wonderful photographer and mother of two dynamic girls. He also enjoys listening to all kinds of music, and he will sit behind the drum kit to play along with that music from time to time.
