Michael Carroll is thirty-eleven years old. He lives in Dublin, Ireland, with his lovely wife Leonia and a very cute black cat called Gul.

He has written a large number of books, short stories, articles, reviews and interviews. For some mysterious reason, almost every one of his books has been touted as his "debut novel" even though that was only true for the very first one.

As well as the New Heroes series of books, his novels for younger readers include the Pelicos trilogy (The Last Starship, Reclaiming the Earth and The Dead Colony), Moonlight, She Fades Away and Renegade.

Among his favourite authors are Harry Harrison, Michael Scott, Tanith Lee, Robert Rankin, John Wagner, Alan Moore, Fabian Nicieza, John Sladek, Bob Shaw, Stan Lee, Christopher Fowler, Joss Whedon, J. Michael Straczynski, Gordon Rennie, Frank Miller, James Morrow, Carl Hiaasen, Brian Michael Bendis, and all the people who like his books.

Michael's favourite artists include such geniuses as John Higgins, Patrick Zircher, Dave Gibbons, Carlos Ezquerra, Brian Bolland, Alex Ross, Steve Dillon, Jim Burns, Jeff Smith, Mark Bagley, PJ Holden, and almost everyone who ever drew Judge Dredd.

In his spare time, Mike wishes had more spare time.
