Michael Delaware, Author

Hello, my name is Michael Delaware. I have also always aspired to be a writer, and have spent a great deal of time doing marketing for various companies over the past decades. I enjoy writing about what inspires me, and this blog called ‘Breath Catch’ came from my description of that moment when you find something that really makes you stop and marvel.

I consider that we live in a marvelous age, and sometimes it is too easy to forget to look about one and get excited. These are exciting times, and I hope that I can pass along some of that to my readers.

First, here is a summary of professional information about me: I have been a licensed REALTOR in the State of Michigan with Troxel Realty Co. LLC since 2006, and I live and work in Battle Creek, the Cereal City. I have sold many, many homes, and helped many people to become homeowners. This blog will sometimes include information about real estate, and real estate transactions, because buying a home is all part of the American Dream.

I have published several books which are available on Amazon.  Take a look at my books and my author information:
