Hi, thanks for stopping by. I’m Mike. I was born in 1984 (it wasn’t so bad, Mr. Orwell!). I got my MA and did some boring stuff (including getting paid to dress up as Little Red Riding Hood) before I started writing. My reading interests in order of discovery as a kid: Historical Fiction, Fantasy (started with the Hobbit and LOTR), Science Fiction (The ending of Asimov’s The Last Question is my favourite sci-fi clinch of all time).
I write because I need to let out the stories from my head. My stories are about characters: how they love, why they hate, what makes them get up from bed every morning. Fights and explosions are secondary – but not neglected! After all, good conflict needs an epic climax.
I became father for the first time in 2016. I want to introduce my son to the things I love. What better way than to tell him his dad writes science fiction?
My current projects in the Science Consortium universe:
Jane Poole Genesis – a series set in the year 2093 about Sigma aka Jane Poole, a mysterious survivor of a destroyed research ship Copernicus on a quest to rediscover her forgotten identity.
Fall of the Space Marine – a series set in the year 2087 about Space Marine Captain Rhys Dreyfus and the downfall of the Space Marines.
There’s schemes, conspiracies, humour and action. Come and have a look. I’m sure you will enjoy it!
