About Michael Kashmanian

My name is Michael Alexander Kelly Kashmanian. I am twenty-one years old, the oldest of ten children. I was homeschooled but have also attended traditional schools, and I am currently attending a local college. I can become very passionate about things I believe in, of which there are many, and I enjoy a good debate. I am an amateur musician, playing guitar and harmonica primarily in the style of blues. Besides this, I also enjoy shooting, keeping tabs on politics, woodcarving, drawing and sketching, building things, and working with machines. Besides writing about my beliefs and convictions, I also try my hand at lyrical poetry and fictional writing. I put a lot of energy into trying to correct misconceptions among well meaning Catholics and Christians in my age group, especially on issues of Life, economics, and social policy.

The Book of Life

When reading a book, one first takes in the setting: the when, the where, the hows of the environment. One will harshly judge an author almost immediately if this first step is not executed believably or well. Next the reader encounters the characters, each one, major or minor, being unique and different, suited for his […]
