Michael Emmett - Author

About the Author

Michael Emmett's trajectory in life seemed simple. Born to a career criminal with links to the infamous Kray twins, it seemed inevitable that Michael would follow in his father's footsteps and join the family business as an international drug smuggler. At just sixteen years old, Michael started working for his father and entered the glamourous, dangerous world of organised crime. By the time Michael was in his twenties, he was living a life defined by drugs, sex and violence. Michael embraced his raucous lifestyle with open arms - even through multiple convictions and the toll his behaviour was taking on his mental health. From partying with his Page Three model girlfriend to smuggling drugs with some of the biggest names in the criminal world, it seemed the high never needed to end. After a dramatic confrontation with the police in 1993, Michael served 12 years in prison for his part in the biggest cannabis smuggling operation in UK history. Since then, Michael has been released from prison and worked hard to reconcile his past with his hopes for the future. He is committed to helping prisoners and ex-offenders to find their own paths to peace. Michael has turned his life around thanks to the strength his faith has given him. Now he wants to share his story. The daughter of a judge and an art curator, Harriet is a journalist who has completed five editorships. She was one of the youngest editors ever of a national glossy magazine and has interviewed the likes of David Bailey, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Melinda Gates, Charles Saatchi and Janine di Giovanni. Her first book, Glorious Hotels of India, was published in September 2019. Harriet has undertaken commissions in some of the world's most untapped destinations, exploring a wide range of cultures and remote communities including Mongolia, El Salvador and Senegal. Working in prisons in India and with people in recovery alongside the sudden loss of her older brother, has given Harriet a real understanding of life's struggles and the frailty of human nature.
