Michael Gallagher is the author of two series of novels set in Victorian times. Send for Octavius Guy chronicles the attempts of fourteen-year-old Gooseberry—reformed master pickpocket—to become a detective, aided and abetted by his ragtag bunch of friends. The Involuntary Medium follows the fortunes of young Lizzie Blaylock, a girl who can materialize the spirits of the dead, as she strives to come to terms with her unique gift. For twenty-five years Michael taught adults with learning disabilities at Bede, a London-based charity that works with the local community. He now writes full time.
I no longer use Facebook or Twitter but I'm very active on bluesky, where I post daily themed tweets—everything from quizzes to Saturday's Mystery Jukebox and surprisingly popular chats about grammar on Sundays. Why not drop by and join in? I have to warn you: I don't generally do DMs.
Young Gooseberry has his own bluesky account as well, where he investigates perplexing cases in real time, 171 years ago to the day.
Octavius Guy @sendforOctavius is one of the greatest things you can read on Twitter. The -AMAZING- writer Michael Gallagher @seventh7rainbow gave new life & meaning to an old character.
