Writer Mike Upchat might be famous if he ever finished a novel. Instead, living from a locker at Marylebone station, he uses his natural charm, wit, and genuine love of ladies to seduce his way through London. Mike's not so much a lecherous lothario as a bit of a loner, but he's always got the gift of the gab on his side...
