‘Mike’ to his friends and family, Michael Warren began writing about his life during the South African winter of 2009. Driven by a strong desire to tell his story, what began as a creative outlet would eventually become his first book, In The Name Of God.
“In many ways,” Michael says, “that time defined who I am today. My time in the army taught me to be resilient, persistent and to believe in my own abilities. It also taught me empathy.”
Michael hopes his tale will strike a chord with men and women, young and old, everywhere, but especially amongst the ex-servicemen whose own stories of that time remain untold and the women who are now their partners.
The writing bug has bitten, and Michael is planning his second book, a hands-on, motivational book, nothing at all like his memoirs, In The Name Of God.
Michael is an indie author. He lives with his wife, two children and a pair of Jack Russells in Pretoria, South Africa.
