‘Mickey Mayhew – from zero to hero!’
Mickey was definitively excluded from school at the age of 12, spending the subsequent four years of his ‘education’ being verbally abused by a bullying, bewhiskered home-tutor; during this time former classmates sent abusive mail to the house and stones were thrown at the windows, whilst fireworks were let off in the front garden. After some equally turbulent teenage years, Mickey sought to reclaim his lost education and enrolled on an A-Level course at Morley College; this led to a degree and then a Masters at the London School of Economics; several more Masters followed, and then finally a doctorate at London South Bank; on top of this he’s the author of several books on the Tudors – one of his autistic ‘obsessions’ – and has just finished his memoir, ‘Mickeypedia – the A to Z of an autistic savant’. He recently won the Anna Kennedy ‘Autism Hero’ award for personal achievement, along with the ‘Autism Hall of Fame Genius Award’. He has contributed to three books on the history of Whitechapel and has had articles and short stories published on everything from Mary Queen of Scots to the lives of teenage runaways in London. He is currently toying with literary ideas for his latest obsession, the Russian mystic Rasputin & the last of the Romanovs.
