Mike Gould

Mike Gould was born in the Somerset town of Midsomer Norton, between the city of Bath and the Mendip Hills. He grew up in the town when it was part of the Somerset Coalfields and spent most of his working life in the electrical industry.

The telling and writing of stories was requested by his three children when they were younger as the published stories of the day became exhausted. He continues with both story-writing and painting to this day.

Mike Gould Q&A with Somerset Guardian


  • The Amazing Fairy Wood


    Deep in the countryside, Sue and Ben live on their father's farm near Fairy Wood. Of course this is no ordinary wood, for fairies are not the only woodland folk who live there. Yet they are worried.

  • Trouble in Fairy Wood


    Sue and Ben's woodland friends in Fairy Wood are in danger. Living on a nearby farm, they overhear the manager say that "the old wood" will have to be removed to make the fields easier to manage.

  • Magic In Fairy Wood


    Could you ever see yourself being as small as a mouse? Could you imagine not only believing in fairies but actually meeting them? Or even having a spell cast on you by a clumsy witch?
