Lucian Poll was born in County Durham, England, but these days lives and works in Norwich. He writes all kinds of stuff of which his alter-ego wouldn't approve. And, yes, he does have silly facial hair.
Keep your eBook readers free from Friday 13th September 2013 for his debut novel, The Floors. If you'd ever wondered how to survive a maze of thirteenth floors then this sweet baby is for you.
In the meantime, do drop by his site, lucianpoll.com, from time to time. If you're tempted by self-publishing, or are curious about the rigmarole involved, then you'll find a number of posts there of interest amidst his usual prattlings.
Keep it scary, people.
