Overview

Michael Scott's early years in rural Gloucestershire laid the foundation for his lifelong interest in landscape and wildlife. Although he qualified as a biologist and acquired a PhD, his feeling for the beauties and tragedies of nature was diverted for years by his agricultural research and senior management posts.

He became a part-time field botanist and ornithologist, and developed his skills as a landscape painter, which activities counterpoised the commercial environment.

In the last twenty years, Michael has worked in the personal development field and became a poet, novelist and artist. His first novels, the 'Fairley Quartet' and 'Imago', carry the themes of his new life, while later novels such as 'Brothers' and 'Nirvana Highway', also draw upon his experience of Transpersonal Psychology.

In 'The Inward Eye', Michael features over 80 of his paintings with explanatory texts.

Michael is married and he and his wife Eileen, also a novelist and painter, have their home in York.
