About Me

My name is Michel Sauret, and in 2008 I earned the title of Army Journalist of the Year for work I did in Iraq when deployed with the Army public affairs.

Now I’m an independent author, and I just released my second book, “Amidst Traffic,” a high-caliber collection of short stories packed with suspense, emotion and a literary flair.

I’m also a photographer and owner of One Way Street Production, which specializes in family and wedding photography.

I published my first novel, “Breathing God” at the age of 19. I studied creative writing at the University of Pittsburgh, and I’ve had short stories published in liteary journals around the world, including the U.S., Great Britain and Australia.

I’ve served as a public affairs specialist and journalist for the U.S. Army since 2004. My work has won several Scoop Brumfield awards. My short story, “Lost in the Night” appeared in the anthology, “Best New Writing, 2008″ and my story, “Three Straws” earned honorable mention in the Monty Culver Award in 2010.
