Michael Fowler has always written stories. In his teenage years he into horror, and science fiction, and then at the age of fifteen he discovered the 87th Precinct books by Ed McBain. This became a turning point in his chosen genre, both to read as well as write. He joined the police and began jotting down his experiences, crafting incidents in which he had been involved into storylines. As his career developed so did his plots, especially when he became a detective. In 1993 Wharnecliffe Press offered him his first contract for a series of nostalgic stories about growing up in his home town of Mexborough. Legacy of our Backings and the follow-up book, No More Kick-Can and Cobbles'were a success. In 2006 he retired from the police following 32 years service. With no more distractions he began the journey of writing that crime novel he had always promised himself he would do.
