Michael Evans's bio


Having trained as a teacher in London and I first began to earn money from writing shortly after beginning my teaching career in Hertfordshire.

I later spent a number of years as a primary school headteacher in Cambridgeshire where I continue to write for a number of publications before taking early retirement to spend more time writing.

Although extremely interested in environmental issues, I am a writer, educator and speaker who can cover almost any topic.
