Michael has been with TIW right from the start and has been in the background, and a few Challenges, doing WAY more than his bit.He is a ROCK...and a journalist :-)
He has been a newspaper reporter since 1999, covering local and county governments in Butler and Warren counties in Southwest Ohio. In 2010, he began to turn to short story writing after falling out of practice in his post-college years.
After honing the skills of a short story writer, which is still a work in progress, M.D. aims to add published short story writer to his list of accomplishments as a journalist, which include a number of individual and team Ohio Newspaper Association honors. He also enjoys the works of Ernest Hemingway and Hunter S. Thompson. When M.D. is not working on his craft, he can be found spending time with his wife and two daughters, or helping out with the wrestlers at Wyoming High School. M.D. has lived in Cincinnati, Ohio, and its suburbs, all his life. - See more at: http://theironwriter.com/the-authors/michael-pitman/#sthash.1iiuVU5h.dpufI was teamed with him in a Grudge match, which ultimately got me into the Winter Open, which I finally won :-) So, I've gotta say "Thanks, Mike, I'm shitting bricks now."
Let's see if I can find one of his stories...here. Spring Equinox Open "The Job. Part 1"(you'll have to scroll down a little) :-)
He also loves Cincinnati Bengals and other sporty stuff in Cincinnati. I'm sure we'll be hearing about him in the near future sometime :-)
