McNeilley writes poetry and puts it up on the internet. This is always getting him in trouble. The trouble isn't so much with people who hate the poetry, though there are probably plenty of those, but with people who love the poetry so much they mistake the poetry for McNeilley himself. For some reason this leads to near-death experiences, for McNeilley at least. But following his near-death wish, he keeps doing it. 

Poems and stories by Michael McNeilley appear in print and electronic publications worldwide. McNeilley's new book, Situational Reality, is now available from Dream Horse Press, San Jose, CA. Write for more information.
