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.
