"Almost all the people who've had the most effect on me I seem to have met by chance, yet looking back it seems as though I couldn't have but met them. It's as if they were waiting there to be called upon when I needed them."

Michael

I'm sorry I haven't replied before - I've been away on 2
holidays no less! One to North Wales and one to the South of
France - Nice to be precise - and both were lovely in very
different ways. I'm about to embark on a third before the
month is out, to … wait for it… Amsterdam. Do you have
details in your magic little book of any of the wonderful
places that we went to? It would be great to try and find
that apple cake at least! I'm going next Saturday with my
5 old friends from sixth form (high school?) the same ones
that I went to New York with when I met up with Erin. Should
be great fun.

Where are you? How are you? What are you planning for your
birthday? I hope you are very well and happy - I'll be in
touch soon.

about
close photo of Michael Stephen Fuchs

Fuchs is the author of the novels The Manuscript and Pandora's Sisters, both published worldwide by Macmillan in hardback, paperback and all e-book formats (and in translation); the D-Boys series of high-tech, high-concept, spec-ops military adventure novels – D-Boys, Counter-Assault, and Close Quarters Battle (coming in 2016); and is co-author, with Glynn James, of the bestselling Arisen series of special-operations military ZA novels. The second nicest thing anyone has ever said about his work was: "Fuchs seems to operate on the narrative principle of 'when in doubt put in a firefight'." (Kirkus Reviews, more here.)

Fuchs was born in New York; schooled in Virginia (UVa); and later emigrated to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he lived through the dot-com boom. Subsequently he decamped for an extended period of tramping before finally rocking up in London, where he now makes his home. He does a lot of travel blogging, most recently of some very  long  walks around the British Isles. He's been writing and developing for the web since 1994 and shows no particularly hopeful signs of stopping.
