That other Blog

Okay, this is a Blog, and it might seem disingenuous to be talking about another Blog, somewhere else. But here’s the funny thing – my other Blog posts are on that very wonderful site, ‘Goodreads’. It’s a place for books – and readers. Funny, that. I’ve written a dozen Blog posts on GoodReads and not one damn ‘Reader’ has bothered to take time out from their busy scehdules to read those posts. ‘Readers’? Try the word ‘Skimmer’, or ‘Glancer’, or ‘Skipper’. Nobody, it seems, amongst the gang who are happy to call themselves ‘Readers’ will sit down and read a Blog from me, the author. Why? It’s free! (‘Readers’ love ‘Free’. I know. I keep giving away e-books and they’re flying off the shelves. Blog posts – No.)

Here’s the link to the latest Blog post: https://www.goodreads.com/author_blog_posts/18810166-the-naked-crime-writer

‘Magic Mike’, the glamorous dancer (from a former life)

Magic Mike

I know, you thought I was just a boring old writer, someone chained to a desk to churn out words on a daily basis. Well, maybe, but that’s only this year.

Last year I was out on the road, doing exotic dancing with the team. You don’t believe me? But I have the photo evidence. I’ll attach it at the bottom there. Yay, check out the abs.

Want some more? There’s plenty more muscles where those orange ones come from. All you need to do is put your email in this little old box below and I will add your name to the exclusive list known as ‘Mike’s Mates’, people who get notified every month about latest News and that means you can get extracts from the latest nov and bits of the next one.

Got an email? That’s all you need!

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

Halo? Hello !

It’s floating in the sky. It’s obviously an Alien (or maybe Allen)

I don’t believe in UFO’s. Well, at least, I didn’t, until this strange object appeared in the sky and followed me around, from pillar to post and gateway to attic. Haunted? I should be so lucky. If I’m ever haunted it won’t be by someone I know. It will be the Taxman

Salford Uni – home

Who is this man? He’s such a rebel !

Salford University? I suppose you could call it my Alma Mater. (One of them.)

I graduated from here in 2002 with an M Phil degree and I’ve never looked back.

(Of course, if I had looked back, in the photo above, I would have seen the Salford Museum and Art Gallery, one of Salford’s great places for a cup of frothy coffee.)
