About the author

Michael Campling

I am a full-time writer working across several genres, but in my largely unplanned life I have been a computer programmer, a website builder, a full-time dad, and a primary school teacher.
Now, the kids may have flown the nest, but we have our Labrador Lottie to keep us company, and she makes sure I step away from the keyboard at regular intervals. We’re fortunate enough to live on the edge of Dartmoor in Devon, so Lottie has plenty of space to run, sniff, and chase after pheasants with no clear purpose in mind.
I’m known to friends as Mikey, so if you’ve read this far, go ahead and drop the formality. My books are listed on, but my blog (and scintillating newsletter) are run from where you can sign up for my readers’ group, which is called The Awkward Squad, and I’ll send you free books and stories, plus a newsletter that’s actually worth reading.
Here’s the only link you’ll need:
