About The Author
Michael Hole lives on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia with his wife, Rachel Dunn and their cat, Morrison. They live in a beautiful wooden treehouse that is nestled in the trees of their stunning, rainforest acreage – home to the Richmond Birdwing Butterfly and all manner of native plants and animals. They call this piece of paradise The Birdwing Treehouse.
By day, Michael is Managing Director and co-founder of Girl Director and Girl Director Academy, along with his wife, Rachel (who is CEO and the original Girl Director). Rachel is also a massive supporter of Michael bringing The Execlintians to the page, and ultimately to a hyper-real, stunning CGI film.
As well as writing this book, Michael has spent many years working as a video director, marketing mentor and online video producer. He is a musician – singer, songwriter and bass player – with his current band The Brindle Men – having played, written and performed in many of his own original bands over the years.
The Execlintians is Michael’s first novel, providing an outlet for his diversely visual and philosophical creativity. As of the beginning of 2022, he has finished writing this extraordinary work. Whilst it is the first draft, it is a complete version of the story and creation of the world that existed on Earth a very long time ago.

Background to The Execlintians (in Michael’s words):
The seeds of this book first came to me in a dream, many years ago. I was deep in the study of consciousness at the time and was just on the verge of waking when a huge, floating eye started looking at me through the slats of an open window. It had an orange and blue double iris, each one twisting back and forth in opposite directions. While I was staring into this eye, the word “exe-clint-iaahn” whispered through the ether of my consciousness. I woke up and wrote the word down, and from the moment, the image and strange word have never left me. Over the years more and more images of this creature and others it knew have come to me, culminating in this detailed account of the sentient plants that lived on Earth about a hundred millions years ago.”
This website is a launch pad for the book, serving as a place to present excerpts of the material so that you can start to read it… That is, before a publisher comes on board and turns it into a nice sized, internationally distributed paperback… That’s what I am planning to do with it. After all… there’s nothing better than a well thumbed paperback novel, is there!
I also envisage an audiobook version, and then a blockbuster CGI feature film. Any contacts to help us get it off the ground are appreciated!
