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 manuscripts, some on paper and some in book form. Many of them grew up and left home, which is where Smashwords comes in.
