I am an indie author of science fiction and fantasy novels, my current focus being on my Science Fiction series the Guardians, and have been writing for 13 years. I live in Pembrokeshire, Wales which has been my home for the last 16 years. I am married with two children, both have left home, my daughter married with a family of her own living in Pembrokeshire, my son living and working in Cardiff. I also have two beautiful grandchildren.
I have served with the Royal Air Force as a dual trade aircraft engineer after completing a 3 year apprenticeship, run my own business for several years until a back injury prevented me from continuing, and then entered the world of finance. I am currently employed as a Local Government Finance Officer.
I have been a passionate reader since early childhood, but was introduced to the fantasy genre at the age of 10 when my father gave me some Conan books and the Thongor of Lemuria series by Lin Carter. I did not actually start writing until my mid thirties, after injuring my back and was off work for a while. It was then that I first penned the drafts of the Science Fiction series The Guardians, followed by the fantasy series The Chronicles of Ferantiana.
My favourite activities other than writing are walking, reading, researching family history, watching classic British Sitcoms, good dramas and films, and listening to music.
