New Author Spotlight: Mike Hansen

Mike Hansen| Marketing Executive and Author | Pen Name Publishing and French Press Bookworks

Mike Hansen first joined our family as our new Marketing Executive. He's been workign hard with our authors on both Pen Name Publishing and French Press Bookworks. Having Mike on board has been a fantastic experience and we are so thankful for how close he is with our authors!

Mike also has a degree in Creative Writing and sent us a great piece we couldn't pass up, When Life Hands You Lemons.

Here's how Mike describes himself:

I was born on December 26th of 1980. I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago in an ordinary house, on an ordinary street, in an ordinary sub-division of an ordinary town.  I started writing early, maybe as therapy, maybe not. I always thought I would be a good artist. It turned out that I couldn’t draw.

I graduated from Purdue University in 2003 with a degree in Creative Writing and Film Studies. Let's throw a minor in Communications for good measure. For the last 10 years I have been practicing the craft, whether it be poetry, scripts, blogging or novels.

You can find me on most social networks practicing anti-social behavior, yet welcoming you in with a warm heart. I have an incredibly beautiful wife, that I met at Purdue, and two kids with the best idiosyncrasies imaginable.
