Meet Michael Croucher who served on the Metropolitan Toronto Police Department for 18 years, and was a member of The Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit investigating organized crime. During his police career, he realized that some criminals study police tactics almost as much as the police do, and that has made for some good glue for his crime fiction. His career in law enforcement was followed by a long business career, mostly in the financial service industry. He has studied creative writing at York University, The University of Toronto, and Ryerson. He’s a double-award winning writer. He won the Toronto Writers and Editors Fiction Contest (2012). And a Joseph Smerdelj Short Story Award in 2020. Mike and his wife are retired in a small Ontario town. They have two married daughters, and five grandchildren.
