Mike Dixon

Biography

I either started off on the wrong foot or I'm the legendary rolling stone. Normally, a degree in astrophysics does not lead to a stint in Parliament House, public relations and the diving industry but that’s what happened to me. I'm now retired in the sense that I no longer need to work for a living and that gives me time for writing. My messy life has provided a lot of background material for my novels. My main interests are history, travelling and meeting people.
