About the Author
I have been writing for several years now and it has become an over powering passion of mine. I work full time with three children and every spare minute I have goes into writing. This is my third book I have done with another in the works and five short stories of children's books. Mr. Pike is by far my best work because there is a real sense of personal contribution to this fiction book. I myself have suffered depression and I am a recovery alcoholic so mental health is very much a big part of my life. I have no great qualifications in English or grammar and although this helps I believe anything is possible if there is passion and if you put your mind to it.
