I am thrilled to find a platform that showcases the work of aspiring writers. I started writing late in life, self-publishing three novels, including one historical fiction and two sci-fi dramas. It was during the process of adapting the historical fiction into an eight episode series, (I've completed Episode One and a Series Bible) and the second sci-fi into a feature length script, that I realized I enjoyed the art of screenwriting more than novel writing. I just completed an original screenplay, entitled, First On Last Off, which I wrote as a graduation gift to my daughter. She recently earned her degree from the University of Toronto's Theater Performance Program. I was happy to hear she enjoyed envisioning herself as the protagonist. I'm proud of the script, although proud is too small a word when it comes my family. I am married to an incredibly supportive partner, my heroine, and I am father to three remarkable adults.

My novels can be found at michaelfdonoghue.com.

The historical fiction, entitled My Kingdom, chronicles the life of my grandfather as a professional soldier before and during World War One. He spent four plus years in India’s North West Frontier before returning to England prior to the summer of 1914. He was among the first to land in France and was captured early on in the war. He spent the next four years in a prisoner of war camp. When my research uncovered what he endured, I had to write it down. He lived a life few men experience.

The two science fiction novels, entitled, Sophia – Age of Intelligence, and The Human Continuum represent my interest in science, politics, and a desire to illustrate, if only in fiction, a more rewarding path forward for humanity. I enjoyed the process of adapting The Human Continuum into a feature length script.

My hobbies include photography, music, and, of course, reading great scripts.

I look forward to adding more content to this platform.
