Mike Huss

Mike was born in London and raised happily in Surbiton. He left the grammar school at 18 and joined the regular army straight from school. He volunteered to serve in Aden so as to join his fiancée who had been posted there. She gave him the ring back the night he arrived! He was then stuck in war zone for two years and the book is largely a summary of his time there as expressed in the person of his alter-ego hero, ‘Jack’. He met his wife, Janet, in Aden.

A varied career with a N. Ireland Training Board, a group training association, being Personnel Director and Tribunal Advocate resulted in writing the Dear Doctor employment law column in Sunday Times for 10 years. This is his first venture into fiction.
