Michael Skyner has dyslexia amongst other things. He is a big kid in a bigger body. He got this from his father – he never grew up either. When he's not writing poetry, he writes zany comic fantasy for children. He lives and works in Nottinghamshire.
After a varied career as postman, social worker, teacher, advertising writer, and nurseryman, Michael Skyner decided to turn his hand to something easier!!! so he became a writer or did writing find him.
For Michael Skyner writing is the best fun that anyone could ever have. "I write because I enjoy it, it's the best therapy there is. To watch characters and plots develop is something akin to magic. I thoroughly recommend it to everyone."
