Michael Faulkner grew up in Northern Ireland but has spent most of his adult life in Scotland, initially working as a solicitor and subsequently setting up a furniture-making company. Despite initial success, the business went under in 2001 and Mike and his wife, professional artist Lynn McGregor, moved to the cabin on Islandmore, his family's summer home. They have lived on the island ever since. Mike has written three books: The Blue Cabin, Still on the Sound and Gentle Giant: An Illustrated History of John Thompson & Sons.
