Michael is in his seventies and had retired from a business career to embark on what he loves; to read and write. He is a prolific reader of all genres, but has a significant interest in history and historical fiction.
He was born and raised on the East Rand of South Africa, and now lives on the South Coast of Kwa Zulu Natal, with his wife of thirty-two years. They have three children, all married and scattered around the country and one living in New Zealand.
As a young man, the Government compelled him to complete military service, which exposed him to many light and heavy weapons. Lesson continued in bushcraft and going unseen in red zones.
Michael got provincial colors for swimming and qualified for a black belt in Funakoshi Karate.
