About Mike

Mike Smears (Waterside Writers) Photo

Mike, having graduated in English Literature in the 1960s, rushed through a quick 35 years of work before retiring, so as to pursue his two most loved hobbies, running and writing.
(The less said about the running the better.)

He has completed one novel, The Unremembered Waters, for which a benevolent publisher is still to be found; and is nearing completion of his second, Waiting by the River.

He finds the group a wonderful place to try out ideas and drafts and to benefit from perceptive, but not unkind,comments.

An example of Mike's poetry, My Brother was like Water (pdf) is available to read or download.
