Growing up in Pennsylvania, author Mike Carmichael says, “I could be found at the library or out tearing up a back road somewhere.” That love of both books and cars is borne out in the pages of his debut book, Past The Hood Ornament: Life Through The Rearview Mirror. In the tradition of story tellers like Jean Shepherd, Carmichael shares tales fueled by small town life, enduring friendship, and a lifetime love of fast cars that are sure to warm the hearts of both car enthusiasts and readers of all ages who enjoy a nostalgic tale told well.
Mike Carmichael is the author of the car column, “A Glance Back,” which appears monthly in Smoke Signals Magazine. He lives in Baton Rouge, LA, where, he says, he’s “living the dream.”

Michael David Lambert, IV is one of America’s most eligible bachelors. Handsome and charming, ‘Mick’ is the CEO of The Lambert Group and heir to the Lambert fortune.

Mackenzie is drawn to Mick’s generosity, kindness and calm demeanor. Mick is captured by Mackenzie’s emerald eyes and vivacious, spunky personality. But when he hears her sing, Mick realizes this single mom has world-class talent, and he uses his influence to launch her into a fabulous new career as a Christian recording artist.
Their attraction to each other is undeniable, but Mackenzie has already suffered one devastating heartbreak; and learning to trust again is harder than she imagined. Can she open her heart to love once more? Or will she allow the pain of her past to command her future?
