P.D Blake

Biography

P.D.Blake is a forty-something writer from East Yorkshire in England. During the day he is a mild mannered software developer. At night, under the cloak of darkness and occasionally under the influence of copious amounts of alcohol, he writes.


What he writes is mainly fantasy, sometimes humorous, sometimes not, sometimes short, sometimes long. He has been writing on and off for a number of years, ever since he bought a manual typewriter back in the late eighties, progressing through an Amstrad PCW to the wonderful world of Windows PCs.


When not writing he can be found in the veg plot, growing his own and brewing his own to go with it, or just talking to his chickens.
