Michael Thomas Houghton is a veteran journalist and international public relations executive who lives and works in the Washington, D.C. area.


Due to a series of illnesses, he was forced to abandon his dream of turning his avocation -- cartooning -- into his vocation 20 years ago. In 2014 he was inspired to pick up his pen again and turn his dream into reality -- no matter the pain or challenge. This book is a labor of love for him and "Mikey" represents his inner free spirit and an outlet for his off-beat attitudes on life and the human condition.


He is a graduate of Suffolk University in Boston, MA, where he was awarded the Martin J. Flaherty Award for Excellence in Journalism. A contributing author of several books and a motivational speaker, Houghton is currently working on a non-fiction book and several more volumes of cartoons.

"Inner Mikey"


We expect that some folks might not find these cartoons funny or get the humor. Maybe because they are not meant to be drop dead funny. After all, if you drop dead, that's simply not funny. 

Volume Two looks at life -- a journey that can sometimes be hard and challenging -- filled with tears, frustration, desperation and anger. But to quote the Rolling Stones song, 'You might not get what you want but if you try, sometimes you'll get what you need. Maybe a little bit of humor is just what you need.
