Darren Humphries


Darren Humphries is English and in his forties.

He is, therefore, a child of the Star Wars era with a corresponding love of science fiction brought about by repeated science fiction movie seasons on BBC2 and, of course, Doctor Who.

As well as being a TV and film science fiction addict since birth (apparently) he has been writing stories since he learned to write, possibly spurred on by placing in a national competition when he was about six years old.

In later years, he has produced a number of science fiction/fantasy/horror novels all of which are now bceoming available on a number of platforms here and elsewhere.

Despite all this, he is fairly normal. Well, he thinks so anyway.

He is widowed, has two children and needs to pay the mortgage.

Between the kids and work and all the other adult stuff that he pretends to be grown up about, he still watches and reviews science fiction television and movies on the Sci Fi Freak Site at www.scififreaksite.com
