I Michael Grossman has authored four other books: Coming to Terms with Aging, the Secret to Meaningful Time, Shrinkwrapped: My First Fifty Years on the Couch- a psychological memoir originally published by RDR Books of California. The Power, a first fiction, and Mike the Moose, Master of Marbles, a true-to-life story about a completely fictitious moose.
"If I had any sense, I'd stick to one genre," says Grossman.
(The "I" really is his first name.)
Grossman's articles cover similarly diverse topics from ecology, ethics, travel marketing, bank marketing, flying, and applied ergonomics. They appear in Advertising Age, Ergo Solutions magazine, The CLIA Cruise Industry Annual Report, The American Banker and Plane & Pilot magazine.
Grossman holds B.A. and M.A. degrees from Michigan State University.
Before leaving academia for what he was told was "the real world," he taught English and Journalism at Oakland Community College and courses at The New School in Manhattan.
Grossman founded four businesses: Cruises of Distinction, Office Organix, and currently runs MyGreenMind.com and the EBook Bakery.
He, Susan and a constantly varying number of four-legged creatures share lives in Rhode Island.


Why This Book is Titled "In Disappearing Ink".

Little known poets are lucky to have an audience on open mic nights. On arrival, we pencil our names at the bottom of a yellow pad. The featured poet reads first and then, time allowing, authors on the list head to the podium to pour out a poem and our hearts. Polite applause may follow.

There's a flicker in time after such a reading, in the seconds it takes the poet to travel from the podium back to his or her seat, when...kazaam…it's as if the words of the poem vanish…are never heard again.

A friend, Tracy Hart, compares it to Buddhists creating a mandala. They may labor in shifts for weeks, moving grains of colored sand to craft magnificent art. But when finished, they wipe the art away...a metaphor that nothing man-made lasts.

That reality suggests the title: In Disappearing Ink and the subtitle, poems you can never find when you need them.

But it also brings to mind another human reality: the joy anyone who has ever written a poem knows - a pleasure arguably more immediate than writing in any other genre. Since so many try their hand at verse, I'm, betting you know how good it feels when you replace an imperfect with a perfect word; and that sense of pleasure when a jarring phrase is improved by shifting its position in a stanza.

Here's to every poet's hours at the keyboard, to the stanzas, to the rhymes created, to the contentment of making, then sharing a poem.
