Michael was born in Cardiff, South Wales on 31st May 1939 and educated at Cathys High School. His working life was involved in civil engineering construction contracts of all types.

The Blackrock Section of the A465 Heads of the Valleys Road was an engineering nightmare. As the section engineer, he was responsible for construction of the carriageway... blasting a large quantity of rock from the narrow gorge, and overcoming a major geological failure. It was a truly memorable opening day when Michael witnessed traffic flowing unhindered between Abergavenny and Brynmawr.

Cork, Sligo, Galway, Tipperary, Kerry, Limerick, etc. On many occasions, Michael told his wife of everyday occurrences explaining how ingenious they were to ease his problems. Carol made notes of many occasions and persuaded him to write a novel when he retired.
