About the Author

Michael McCarthy is a journalist with a difference. Whenever possible, he writes about people “making a difference” in their journey through life. His articles have appeared in many newspapers and magazines in Canada and the USA. In the 1990s Michael was founder and editor of Spare Change, a “street newspaper” that gave a voice and employment to hundreds of homeless people in Vancouver and across Canada. His work was profiled hundreds of times in media around the world. He received the prestigious Ethics in Action Award from Canadian Businesses for Social Responsibility and VanCity for promoting solutions to homelessness. Michael’s in-depth investigative reporting about civic issues such as housing, transit, the economy and the environment have appeared in the Vancouver Courier, Shared Vision Magazine, the Vancouver Sun and Province, National Post and many Postmedia newspapers across Canada. For nearly a decade he wrote feature articles for the famed Pacific Sun in California. Recently 36 of his OpEd articles have been published in the Vancouver Sun. He is the author of a dozen books include fiction and non-fiction. Indigenous and poverty issues have always been a concern. In 2008 Michael was a founding member of the Lt.

With funding from Optik TV he produced a 30 minute documentary “Wai Wah!” about Write to Read, available on YouTube.
