I am a writer living in the UK. I was born in Yorkshire but grew up in Lincolnshire. After living in various other parts of the country I am back in, as Henry VIII called it, 'The most brute and beastly of my shires'. (It's not that bad...)
Avoiding anything as sensible as a career I've tried to do as many jobs as possible that would sound interesting in a writer's CV not limited to a postman, night receptionist in a motel, running a market stall, ebay trader and something involving chicken bones and a skip I'd rather not think about too much plus a lot of much lest interesting sounding jobs in IT.
When not writing I do all the usual boring things like walking, watching films, surfing the internet, photography and drinking the odd glass of whisky.
I've previously written for a number of different publications under other names but I am now putting out my first novels with the indie publisher Refraction.
I read widely and my favourite writers are Iain Banks, Iain M Banks, Time Willocks, Harry Harrison and Alan Moore.
