Mikey was born in Scarborough which, frankly, is not where he would've chosen. He was, he says, given very little say in the matter.
Although he grew up in Yorkshire, he resists all attempts to classify him by Northern stereotypes, which is just the sort of bloody-minded attitude you'd expect from a Yorkshireman.
He now lives in Devon, on the edge of the wilds of Dartmoor, with his wife, two children, a black Labrador and a fish called Bernard.
On the subject of writing, he says:
"I love the savage business of writing - it's edgy, exciting and much harder work than everyone thinks."
Now we bring you the anecdote:
Mikey has had lunch with Sir Terry Pratchett. Twice.
