Michael Walters, author of novels

Author picture

Iā€™m originally from Port Talbot, South Wales. I studied astrophysics at the University of Kent, then spent a year training to be a journalist before becoming a computer programmer. I went on to study creative writing, first at the Open University, then completing an MA in Creative Writing with Manchester Metropolitan University.

My debut novel, The Complex, was published by Salt in 2019. My short story, Signal, was published as a limited edition chapbook by Nightjar Press in October 2020.

I am currently a software developer and live with my family in North Yorkshire. I am working on my next novel.
