Mike Brecon was born and lived in Wales before moving to East Anglia. There, he has worked as a lecturer and head of the department in Higher Education, as well as a language consultant. He is now a freelance writer and returns to Wales whenever possible for an essential "culture-fix" and to see some real hills!
He has had books of non-fiction published, articles placed in newspapers, monthly and quarterly journals, and short stories and poetry published in literary magazines in Britain and abroad. He also has an historical novel at present under editorial consideration with an independent British publisher.
