Born in 1974, Michael has been drawing pictures ever since he could pick up a Burnt Sienna crayon and scribble all over the new wallpaper. Nowadays, he tends to use pencils, paper, and a Mac. When he's not drawing pictures or solving mysteries, he lives in Surrey, with his lovely wife Alice, his two crazy kids Noah and Matilda, and an imaginary dog.
