These are the authors we have worked with, and the people we have come to call friends. Each one is as unique and vibrant as their writings, and they each have a special take on life. In their own way, they have helped Polish & Pitch become what it is today.

November’s Feature Author

Michael Pudney

Michael had already written his first book by the age of 10, an epic tale of adventure, comedy, and treasure hunting through the jungle. Although not a New York Bestseller, this was the launch pad that sent Michael into the writing-sphere. Winning a short story competition in his teens renewed his confidence once more, and although he was the only entrant, he knew his writing must have improved since his debut novel.

England born and now world-traveler, Michael has his first published creative nonfiction novel, By Any Means, coming out later this year. He wouldn’t like to say he has a particular genre he sticks to. Be it comedy, thriller, horror or dystopian, whatever spills from his brain is patterned awkwardly onto the page.

You can check out Michael’s witty writing on his website, michaelpudney.com, and follow him on Twitter.
