Mick Kitson

Mick Kitson

Mick Kitson was born in South Wales, and studied English at university before launching the prolific 80s pop band The Senators with his brother Jim. He worked as a journalist for several years, then went on to become an English teacher.

Mick lives in Fife, Scotland with his wife Jill and bad-tempered dog Lucy. He has three grown-up children, and spends more time than is good for him fly-fishing for sea trout, reading, playing the banjo and growing strawberries. He also builds boats. Sal is his first novel.



The tarp and the hunting knife and the kettle frame and even Peppa's walking trainers all came in the post, all got on Amazon and all with the nicked cards Robert brought back with him and kept in the bedside drawer.
