Since 2009, J. Michael Spaur has been writing adult fiction, fantasy, and adult romance, along with poetry and assorted ponderings, which reflect upon the issues and behaviors he has noticed not only within his own life, but socially in general. In The Shadows Danced, he offers us a brief glimpse into a slightly darker and far more personal side of himself. From a father's limitless pride and love for his daughter, to personal sorrow , a tortured soul, and even touching on love rekindled and then lost again, he draws from his own life to paint the listener a raw, vivid, and emotional portrait of his own soul.
With his willingness to explore the darker sides of human nature and social taboos, Mr. Spaur finds himself no stranger to both critical and controversial reviews. If asked, he simply smiles and says, "They only complain and criticize because they always seem to find something that hits home - or worse, stirs something inside of them that they'd rather not admit to."
