I was born in Lincoln, England, in 1962. My background is in teaching and journalism.
As a novelist, I would describe myself as something of a 'fantasy oddball', mainly because most of my influences are not really from the genre.
My reading began with Richmal Crompton's unsurpassable 'William' stories. I loved the way she wrote the words William and his friends said, exactly as she heard them in her head. The creation of two important double acts in Blue Fire Burning, namely goblins, Grot and Mouldy, and Pahleen winglets, Niktac and Ricochy, owes much to this wonderful character sculptress.
My bookcase was also full of things like 'Jennings' (Anthony Buckeridge), 'Biggles' (Capt. W.E. Johns), and loads of ... read more
