Mick is a published author with a very strong pedigree - over 100 books for children published to date, by major publishers including Oxford University Press, Heinemann, Penguin, Walker Books, Watts and Longman. Mick has also been involved in a variety of broadcast media. He frequently tours schools with his workshops, where children (and sometimes adults) are encouraged to bring stories to life. Mick's talents encompass every genre, and he is as comfortable with rhyme as with prose, fiction as with non-fiction. He is able to inject light and humour into any setting, but also weaves magic and intrigue into the dark worlds of traditional tales, myths and legends. Mick writes in a shed in Cambridge, where he can play Wagner as loud as he likes.
