Mikey’s life takes us on a tour of Western North Carolina from Maggie Valley in Haywood County where he was born into a large local family, to rural Macon County where his father pastored another church and where Mikey came to view him as abusive, to Asheville in 1962 when he was ten years old, and finally to Western Carolina University. The rest of his life has been spent in Tennessee where he got his masters in public administration from UT and went on to a career in county government and hospital administration in Cleveland, Tennessee.
