Michael Hall aka Elias Tobias

These poems are really little stories of characters, observed or experienced by the author, without the introductions and conclusions. These are snapshots of their thoughts, leaving the settings and character details up to the reader.  The poems focus of the feelings of the moment, and possible reasons of decisions or reactions of these feelings.  These collective actions create who we are, and why we do what we do.

Elias Tobias is the pen name Hoosier Michael D. Hall started to use in the early 1990’s. His first works were published in junior high school.  This interest in writing led to a career in photojournalism and education, teaching Secondary English.

Throughout college and the different jobs that supported him, writing was and continues to be a constant factor in his life. In 1998, he started the web blog, “The World of Words by Elias Tobias,” which has been an alternate venue for his poetry, photography and other related articles and videos.   More background information about the Columbus North High School graduate and Bartholomew County resident can be found on the poetry blog.

“Figments of My Reality,” is published by Bloomington-based AuthorHouse, Inc. It can be ordered through the AuthorHouse bookstore Web site at or through online stores. Or call the AuthorHouse Book Order Hotline at 1-888-280-7715, or visit the World of Words by Elias Tobias by going to
