Mickey Scantlebury

Biography

Born at four o'clock in the morning, and I don't remember much about that. But after I started talking I was told I was living in Bristol, UK, in the South West of England, and close to Cornwall, where most of my ancestors come from. After some exploring to the east coast, (and writing my first novel), I moved on up to Manchester, where the wool comes from, and started making babies, some human and some in book form. Many of them grew up and left home, which is where Smashwords comes in.
Oh, and there was also Canada. I spent a few years over there, but after a rather messy divorce, had to come running back to sunny England, with my tail between my legs. (It may be why several people think I'm Canadian. It's not true. But I do like the syrup.)
