About Michael Haskins
Michael Haskins was born and raised outside Boston, in North Quincy, Massachusetts. His career in journalism began while in high school as the weekend midnight - 8 a.m. office boy in the city room of the Boston Record-American and Sunday Advertiser. He left Boston for a college scholarship in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Politics got in the way and he was back at the newspaper within a year. Soon after he left for Los Angeles where he discovered he didn't have the height or good looks for on-air news. He did join the Greater Los Angeles Press Photographers Association, serving one year on its board and two years as head of its chili cook-offs held at the LA Press Club. He worked at ABC-TV during the prime years of sit coms and variety shows. Twenty years ago, he moved to Key West, Florida to be the business editor/writer for the local rag. Five years later, he joined the city as its public information officer. Once again, five years later, politics interfered and Haskins was out of a job. His book, Chasin' the Wind, was published about that time, 2008. He has freelanced for the bi-weekly Keynoter, been the arts & entertainment writer for the Key West Weekly and been a stringer for Reuters News Service in Miami. Now he writes fulltime and hopes to do two books a year so he can spend his summers in the Irish countryside writing more.
