About the Author

Apparently, Mike Welch once read that most authors start their writing career when they reach 50. Although, not wholly convinced of the statistical validity of this statement it fits his circumstances so he’s going to believe it! So, obviously, this book has endured a considerable, gestation.

The attic of his mind was filled with corporate gobbledegook, theories and the like. So it has come like a breath of fresh coffee laced air to write this, his first short story, Mindless Jigsaw. He’ll spare you the rhetoric about his tortuous path, the battle against all odds and the incredible cost of toner cartridge and instead tell you why he wanted to bring you his words and thoughts.

He’s always loved words, with their multitude of meanings, their obscure origins and their ability to enrich the social environment. With age he’s grown tired of the increasing standardisation, codification and dumbing down of the written word and has attempted to put something together that can weather the storm. Of course, it’s down to you, the reader to see if he’s been able to do that. He’s had a ball putting this together and he wants to share it with you, if that’s OK?

He hopes that you enjoy his written musings, mutterings and mumbo jumbo (sic) and that your copy of Mindless Jigsaw, finds its way into your life. At least, just for a bit!
