Mike Grist

Born in the UK to a British father and American mother, Mike Grist spent his childhood winging between the family farm in Kentucky and a terraced house in Manchester. At 18 he finished his last year of high school in Indiana, hitchhiked coast-to-coast then worked at a summer camp in Massachusetts. Fascinated by the extremes of human behavior, Mike got his undergraduate degree in psychology at 21 then followed up with a Masters in motivation theory. Seeking to push himself beyond the normal, he lived in Tokyo, Japan for 11 years, documenting the dark side of the country's gangs, cults and abandoned places. His photography and articles have been featured in the Guardian and the Daily Mail, and thriller author Barry Eisler called his work, "Gorgeous, haunting, stunning." Mike is a tournament-winning karate black belt, with training in jiu-jitsu, capoeria and handling arms. As research for the cult element of the Christopher Wren thrillers, Mike extensively interviewed cult survivors. Now he writes from London, UK, about cult leader and ex-DELTA operator Christopher Wren - a vigilante who brings harsh payback for dark crimes on an unprecedented scale. Mike also writes post-apocalyptic fiction as Michael John Grist: www.michaeljohngrist.com
