Meet the Author: From Largs
Born in Glasgow, Mike grew up in Cumbernauld new town, then lived and worked as an award-winning journalist in various parts of the UK before settling on the west coast of Scotland. He has lived in Largs for over 30 years.
Since semi-retirement in 2017, Mike has been making up for lost time by writing the books that have been in his head and on various scattered notes for decades.
He also writes a column for a national newspaper and lectures in journalism at the University of Strathclyde.
Mike's first novel, The Fenian, was released in August 2020. A non-fiction book, Fishing in the Sun, comes out in November 2020.
