About the Author

Michael E Wills was born on the Isle of Wight, UK, and educated at the Priory Boys School and Carisbrooke Grammar. He trained as a teacher at St Peter’s College, Saltley, Birmingham, before working at a secondary school in Kent for two years.

After re-training to become a teacher of English as a Foreign Language he worked in Sweden for thirteen years. During this period, he wrote several English language teaching books. His teaching career has included time working in rural Sweden, a period that first sparked his now enduring interest in Scandinavian history and culture – an interest that after many years of research, both academic and in the field, led him to write 'Finn’s Fate' and the sequel novel, 'Three Kings – One Throne'. Continuing in a Viking theme, in June 2015, Michael published, 'Children of the Chieftain: Betrayed', the first of a quartet of Viking adventure stories for young readers. The book was described by the Historical Novel Society reviewer as "An absolutely excellent novel which I could not put down.” The novel was long-listed for the Historical Novel Society, 2016 Indie Prize.The second book in the quartet, 'Children of the Chieftain: Banished', was published in December 2015 followed by the third book, 'Children of the Chieftain: Bounty', which was published in 2017. This title is the fourth and final book in the quartet.

Today, Michael works part-time as Ombudsman for English UK, the national association of English language providers. Though a lot of his spare time is spent with grandchildren, he also has a wide range of interests including researching for future books, writing, playing the guitar, carpentry and electronics.
