This is a place for anyone who loves Michael Jackson or is at least interested in him. I’ll be blogging on the latest topics of interest to MJ fans, as well as linking to other great sources of info. I welcome all your comments, but please, no bashing that is serving no purpose except, well..to bash. The golden rule of thumb here is respect for Michael as an artist, an entertainer, a humanitarian and human being. I may occasionally raise some questions and tough issues, but the bottom line: It’s all for love. L-O-V-E. Comments must relate specifically to the blog and/or to Michael Jackson. All others will be regarded as “spam” and deleted.
My name is Raven Woods. I’m a writer, sometime journalist, and all-around MJ fan.I’m not an MJ expert and don’t claim to be. I’m just a fan who enjoys sharing my views and insights with others. I have found that writing about him has helped me get through the grief over his loss. It helps me to put things in perspective. And like many of you, I am seeking justice and closure for what happened to him, as well as hoping that eventually his name and legacy will be fully exonerated by the media.
Some of my credentials include The W.B. Yeats Award, the International Merit Award from “The Atlanta Review,” The Hackney Literary Award, and two writing fellowships: The Albert and Elaine Borchard Fellowship and The Taos Summer Writer’s Conference. I have an MA in English from Mississippi State University and an MFA in Creative Writing from Georgia College and State University.
