I come from Glasgow, Scotland, but these days I live down under in Melbourne, Oz.
For ten years, between 2001 and 2011, I was a session/touring musician, working throughout the UK and Ireland, playing bass and having fun. Sometimes I miss it.
In 2011, I retired from music (at the decrepit age of 33) and went back to school. I studied English Literature and History. I wrote short stories at the same time - bad ones. But I stuck with it.
I got my degree. And then I put it in a drawer somewhere (sock drawer I think). I was still writing - both fiction and by that point, sports features (mixed martial arts and boxing) for a variety of magazines and websites. It felt good to get paid.
In 2015, I moved to Australia. I put non-fiction aside and decided to become an indie author full-time. Fifty Shades of Grey has a lot to answer for.
So what do I write? Speculative Fiction. That is, Alternate Histories, Post-Apocalyptic and Horror stories. These are the genres I love. Although I do have 'The Outsider Tales' too, which is none of the above.
Now I'm writing a series in which ex-Beatle John Lennon is alive and well and wreaking havoc in a non-Beatle way. I'm also writing about a world in which the London riots of 2011 didn't stop. Post-Apocalyptic shit.
