Mike's love affair with travelling began when he and a friend breathed new life into an old Honda Prelude and preceded to clock up over 10,000km traversing the Australian outback. It became their ticket to personal freedom, as they threw off the shackles of modern, first-world rights-of-passage and delved deep into a life of unplanned, unfiltered and socially-engaging experiences.
Their desire to disregard the rule-book led them to rural parts of Australia, and then onward to Asia, Europe and Africa, as the two of them ground out a hand-to-mouth existence through unconventional work, with the primary focus set on forging new relationships with their global neighbours.
Mike's obsession with writing and all things literary soon took on a new shape, as he began writing short stories about his experiences and sharing them with the wider community.
You could say these are the roots of Sun Rider Press.
