Micke Ahola

Writing about the things swirling around my brain.

Who is Micke?

I’m a writer from Espoo, Finland, currently living in Manchester, UK.

I spent a lot of my childhood travelling and changing schools, and immersed myself in stories like Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. I loved these stories because they gave me a chance to escape, but also gave me ideas and inspiration to bring back into my own life.

I’ve been creating my own stories since I was seven. Since then, my ideas and medium have gone through many changes – as a teenager I taught myself programming and decided I would make games, and invested myself into hip-hop and considered a career as a rapper. I ended up coming back round to writing – if only to save myself from embarrassment.

I studied English Literature at the University of East Anglia, and have since then made a living as a copywriter. I continue to enjoy writing down my stories, and have collected some here on this site for you to read. I’m also at work on editing the second draft of my first novel.
