Michael Kelly was born in Bristol, in1937. He was the son of Joseph Leo and Madge Kelly. He has never left his hometown apart from completing his National Service in the Royal Navy (1955/7). Just a boy from Bristol is his first written work, and is a memoir of his early years in war torn Bristol. A moving account of those dark and scary days as he travelled around the city with his mother and younger sister as the bombs rained down on them.
He was educated at St Mary on the Quay school before becoming one of the early recipients of the new post war scholarship system, which took him to St Brendan's College in Berkeley Square, Clifton.
A keen sportsman, he represented Bristol Boys and Bristol Public and Grammar Schools at Rugby whilst at school, and Bristol United at senior level. Mike was also a keen footballer and in 1954 he made his one and only appearance for a Bristol Rovers Junior team
Just a boy from Bristol has been described as 'poignant', and one reader said that she 'found a smile or a tear on every page'. An accurate reflection of life in Mike's opinion.
