Michael Conway was born and raised in Charlottetown. He enrolled in the Canadian Army at seventeen and served throughout Canada with tours in Germany, the Middle East and Cyprus. Retiring in 1997, he enjoyed a second career in the telecommunications section of the Charlottetown Police Services where he retired for the second and hopefully final time in 2013. Mike has been writing primarily memoir since 2007 but, on occasion, has dabbled in fiction. He is a regular contributor to Red, The Island Story Book and has recently learned that Acorn Press will publish his first book in 2016.
