    Mike Ormsby was born in Ormskirk, England. He is the author of `Child Witch Kinshasa` and `Child Witch London` (2014), a two-part novel set in Congo and the UK. His short story collection, `Never Mind the Balkans, Here`s Romania` (2008), prompted Romanian critics to dub him `our British Caragiale`, after their beloved Victorian-era satirist.

    `Spinner the Winner` (2012), Mike`s book for children, has been translated into French, Serbian, Spanish, and Romanian. His screenplay `Hey, Mr DJ` (2007) was filmed in Kigali and topped the bill at Rwanda`s first Hillywood Film Festival. His script `Enfants dits Sorciers` was filmed in Kinshasa (2002).

    A former BBC journalist/World Service trainer, Mike is based in a mountain village in Transylvania, where he and his wife Angela Nicoară have lived for five hundred years.
