My name is Michael, but many call me James or Giackino (original spelling Giaccino). I was born in Aviano, Italy and lived there for four years before moving to Michigan where I lived for two short years. From there I moved and was raised in Alabama. I am a writer who deals with the darkest aspects of humanity, who delves deep into the conscious and subconscious of the mind. I have been published in fifteen different magazines (thirty times total) and have published four books of poetry. I am also editing my first novel and am trying to get that published by the same company. They like the novel and say it could be published by this summer.
Love writing poetry, and short stories. listening to classical music, and any good type to be honest. I like the occasional drink, and I am deeply enthralled by dark literature, specifically those that delve into the darkest aspects of humanity.
