Michael Cargill is an up and coming author from England. In mid-2011 he published his first book and since then has gone from strength to strength with each passing year.
Although known for his dramatic and engaging stories, he is also a satirist and humorist and encourages people to take a look at his humorous work - http://michaelcargill.wordpress.com/
Anyone unsure of which book to read first should take a look at Shelter from Thunder. It is a short, easy read and also a personal favourite of his.
