About Michael Barnett

I’ll say it up front: I’m probably the most eccentric person you will ever meet. Currently, I’m a student at UCONN double majoring in geology and creative writing. I love long distance biking. Oh yeah and I collect hobbies like your average ten year old collects trading cards. Let me see if i can say this all in one breath. ready, set, go. I write novels, I’m a self taught bladesmith (blacksmith that specializes in making knives and swords), I brew alcohol (but don’t drink it), I fish, I hunt, I’m long distance biker, I quad, I hike, and I will be learning the martial arts of krav maga and kendo starting in a few months. Whew! That about sums it up i think. Interested in what i do? Follow the blog!
