A retired septuagenarian, Michael James Treacy lives in idyllic bliss with Mrs Treaclechops, and spends much of his time in various literary, artistic and horticultural endeavours. He has three children, six grandchildren and a wonky leg.
A working life spanning 50 years included such disciplines as soldier, sales engineer, design engineer, estimator, buyer, quality manager and project manager. He was glad of a good sit-down at the end of it all.
He’s had a number of poems and short stories published in various magazines and anthologies over the last decade. Many of these were to raise funds for charities.
