Biography

Mick Jett is a free-lance writer and veteran journalist who worked for more than 20 years on the staff of The Miami Herald where he served as assistant news editor and chief of the copy desk. During his years as a journalist his duties included sports writing for The Montgomery (Alabama) Advertiser and The Tallahassee (FL) Democrat, editing and reporting for The Tennessean in Nashville.
As a freelancer Mick wrote feature stories for The Herald, The Tallahassean and a two-part cover story for Irish Dancing Magazine in the UK. His short story, Monster in the Neighborhood which appeared in Tropic Magazine was used as a writing example for its writing contest.
While in Miami, Mick contributed to the NY Times' Names in Bold column and compiled the Miami best-seller list for the Times on a weekly basis. He was a stringer for the British news service Reuters and his stories were published globally.
After early retirement from The Herald he wrote 28 full-page, gonzo-style short stories for a weekly newspaper, The Tallahassean. His two-part series on Michael Flatley was cover material for two issues of the UK-based Irish Dancing Magazine. He taught journalism during the afternoons at the University of Miami while working nights for The Herald.
