Jacob Prytherch

Biography

I was born in 1980, leaving the splendour of Derbyshire for the Midlands at the age of five. I started writing when I was seven due to a love of Tolkien and have been writing ever since, studying English at university and thoroughly enjoying every moment. I currently live in Birmingham with my wife and two daughters, writing as much as I can in the darkness before they wake up. Coffee is both my friend and my enemy.

I don't do moody black and white photos, I don't pay to enter vanity competitions and I have no interest in investing hundreds of pounds just so a couple of people will think I'm bona fide. I welcome criticism as I am always looking to get better.

I just like writing and hope that one day I can support my family with it. If not, I'll just keep plugging away in the wee small hours for my own amusement. Either way, I'll be happy.
