He was one of the winners in the Northern Crime Short Story Competition

The wide-ranging collection showcases some of the best emerging talent in UK crime, proving that short stories are the perfect form to introduce fresh blood to the crime-writing scene.

The Northern Crime Competition, run by the crime imprint Moth Publishing, was founded to recognise and to publish talented new crime writers from the North of England.

Michael has won several competitions and awards, including Most Highly Commended in the 2013 John Howard Short Story Competition.

He has also written for stage, TV and radio and is currently looking to develop some of his stories for TV while working on a novel.

Andrea Murphy, director of Business Education Publishers and publishing director of Mayfly Press, said: “It has been an exciting journey working with all twenty writers to create this wonderfully raw and eclectic mix of story-telling that is Northern Crime One; an anthology that has something for all readers of crime fiction.”
