Hi, pleased to meet you, I’m Michael Holley.
I’m a writer of comedy fiction. I’ve self-published two books so far and learnt a lot along the way. My intention was to share my experiences on this blog so that others could learn from my mistakes. I’ve now collated most of this advice into a solitary ebook which is available for FREE when you subscribe to this blog.
I post somewhere between 3-4 times a week, and I honestly cover the good times, and the bad times, of being a writer in such a changing literary landscape.
Before all of this, I used to lead quite a conventional existence, being part of the daily grind, working for the man, but two things convinced me that I needed to change. The first was the discovery that I love to write, and wouldn’t it be pleasant if I could do such a thing for the rest of my life; and secondly, I realised how many opportunities there are in the world which I was missing out on by working in just one career.
I have a beautiful wife, and two beautiful children that happened to be born as twins. I grew up in Southampton, UK, then moved to Manchester, UK, and now live on the desert island of the Isle of Wight, just off the bottom of the UK. I did spend a brief time living in Stockholm, Sweden, though and this was where my new life began to take shape. I’ll forever love Sweden for this.
It’s great that you’ve turned up here, and I’d love to hear from you if you have something specific to say about a post, or in fact anything you like. You can use the normal comment boxes, and I encourage you to follow this blog by eMail so that you don’t miss any part of the journey.
