I wanted to write from a very young age, and fiction was always the aim. But non-fiction came first: articles, and my first technical work, were published before I left school.
I began work in research and development in the field of semiconductor research, where I developed a keen interest in technology. I then became a chartered engineer and designed electronic equipment for the disabled. The next step was to combine my interests by becoming a technical author and then a technical publications manager: a role I had for many years. During this part of my career I published a number of technical books under a different name. After that, I finally got around to publishing fiction.
My debut novel, a psychological thriller called ‘Sandman’, was published in 2010, followed by my non-fiction work ‘Reality Check: Science Meets Religion’, in 2011. The latter stemmed from a desire to ratify apparent differences between science and religion. Then back to contemporary fiction, with 'Flying a Kite' in 2013, using underlying ideas connected with man's desire to know the so-called "meaning of life" - but with a thriller twist! My latest novel, a mystery thriller called 'The Grave Concerns of Jennifer Lloyd', was published in 2016.

Reality Check: Science meets Fiction has most definitely given me a different outlook regarding the ages old argument of science vs religion. I have never believed that there can be only one or the other and Ian Kingsley’s book has served to cement my outlook regarding this subject. I found his comparisons both for the existence and lack of existence of God and the fact that the belief in science or the belief in a God does not necessarily mean that the other does not exist thought provoking. Mr. Kingsley is most definitely a talented writer, I find his book to be clear and concise very easy to understand and follow. Give this book a chance you won’t regret it! It makes for some great conversations that’s for sure.

Reality Check: Science Meets Religion was a very interesting book. I found that the author has done a wonderful job presenting his argument regarding his beliefs where science and religion are concerned. It was refreshing that Mr. Kingsley has done so much research because most of the time books such as these are all based in personal opinions and have no basis or even a coherent argument for why the author is asking you to believe what they are saying. I would definitely recommend this book to my friends and family it is a thought provoking book to say the least.
