Since winning his first (of three!) Children’s Book of the Year award in 2009 on youwriteon.com (a showcase platform for unpublished writers), Mike knew that writing was definitely his true calling.
He is a huge fan of the underdog, hates bullies, and believes that children are horribly underestimated. His stories often represent his view that, with a few exceptions, children are generally pluckier, cleverer, and kinder than most of the adults they interact with.
Mike has three daughters who double up as literary critics. Their honest reviews have seen many drafts of his novels shelved...some never to be revived!
