About the Author

Victor Michaels was born of Puerto Rican descent in the lower east side of Manhattan in ‘53. His parents moved around a few more years then moved to the country. Back then, Eastern Long Island was country. Dirt roads with a few homes surrounded by woodlands inhabited with wildlife. Soon there after “progress” came along and industry killed the magic of the woodlands. He then graduated high school, tried marriage and failed. Eventually he found love and has been so for the last 28 years.


‘Sagas’ came from a story he wrote in college about a handicap boy. Taunted by his peers and the only child of a widowed farmer’s wife, he learns of real loneliness and of life’s true obstacles through his association with a renegade Indian shaman. Michaels enjoyed seeing his imagination on paper. He recalls a professor’s words. “Don’t worry about the grammar.” He chuckles and adds, “Even though it has and is one of my most difficult obstacles. I would have never gotten past the title.”


In 2004, he and his partner moved to a small town south of Tampa. He believes it had been known as the tomato capital. “They still have festivals,” he said. Later that year, he was fortunate enough to meet his, ‘muse.’


Michael’s fascination with Sci-Fi and Fantasy started with the films of the 50’s and 60’s and has taken him in the direction you now see before you. To enhance your experience he has placed “Saga” and other information on this website,


Personal note from author: Enjoy the journey that is, “The Sagas of Dxaan Lere,” and remember…“You don’t have to dissect something to learn how it ticks. Just listen a little closer for the heartbeat. You can always kill it in the sequel!”
