Michael Kiel

Michael Kiel’s CHALLENGE THE MOMENT was selected as the winner of the 2nd Annual PatZi Award.

Listeners were impressed with Michael’s courage and good humor when he was a gust on Joy on Paper. Once they read the book, they felt humbled by a man  who has never lost the joy of living.

This comment by a reviewer says it all: 

That is the inspiration of this story. He maintained love in his heart and left anger and retribution behind in the dust I recognize the influence of his parents in shaping his world view.” – Paul Looney


This is an amazing Audible book. The narrator, Austin Kase, has the perfect voice for a book that is both heart-wrenching and laugh out loud funny. It is just perfect.
