Michael Ford


I’m a writer based in the north-west, and I’ve published books for adults and children of all ages over the last fifteen years, fiction and non-fiction. I’ve also ghost-written projects for other more famous individuals. My passions are thrillers, fantasy and historical fiction. I’m also a commissioning editor at a publisher, so I know my way around the business pretty well. I live on the edge of the Peak District with my wife, two young children, and two dogs.
