Gayle, Mike

b. 1970, Birmingham, England

writer, journalist

Educated at Lordswood Boys' School, Birmingham, Gayle had a range of careers on his mind when he started thinking about what to do with his life, but writing books was not one of them. He thought about social work and teaching before deciding on music journalism. His first foray into writing was for the university magazine (see publishing, newspapers and magazines). He then went on edit a music fanzine and joined a Birmingham listings magazine. Gayle moved to London and embarked on a postgraduate diploma in journalism. While freelancing, he started to write for the recently launched Bliss; they needed an agony uncle and Gayle got the job. My Legendary Girlfriend (1998), his first novel, was started because he thought he had a story to tell that people would like, saying that the universality of getting dumped-the wallowing in self-pity, the pining, the lack of dignity-had too much comic potential not to write. Gayle's work thus far is characterised by the way he uses relationships, which gives his novels a popular feel. One critic called him a romantic novelist and Gayle has been dubbed in the media as the male Helen Fielding.

As a freelance journalist he has contributed to the Sunday Times, the Guardian, The Times, the Express, FHM, Cosmopolitan, More, B, Just Seventeen, Bliss, the Scotsman and Top of the Pops magazine. Gayle's subsequent novels Mr Commitment (1999) and Turning Thirty (2000) have also achieved notable success. His work has been published in Europe, Australia and North America.
