Michael Joseph lives with his wife in Coventry, England, and between them they have five children and three grandchildren. His career has been wide and varied, including a short-lived but memorable stint working in a funeral home. After a lifetime reading books, and with his fortieth birthday fast approaching, he took the plunge and started producing his own fiction. Now he can't imagine not writing. He has published three Sam Carlisle mystery thrillers on Amazon Kindle.
