Dave Michael is a graduate of the Welsh College of Music and Drama. Before becoming a full time author he worked as a handyman, seaman, drama teacher and Community film trainer. Since 1996, Dave lives and works in Eire, where he has been inspired by the landscapes of the West Coast. The historical fiction book, ‘Feather of Hawk’, is his most extensive piece of work and has taken twelve years to develop. When he is not writing, he likes to walk landscape, where he is calmed by nature; watching swallows and hawks fly is one of his favourite pastimes.
