I grew up in Coatbridge, Scotland, and after my six years at High School I attended Glasgow University studying Chemistry with Medicinal Chemistry. Having graduated with an M.Sci (Hons) degree, I continued my studies and gained my teaching qualification. As a newly qualified teacher I returned to my hometown and taught Chemistry in one of the local high schools. With a proven track record in teaching I was accepted as a full member of the Royal Society of Chemistry and entitled to use the designatory Letters 'MRSC'.
During my time at University I met the woman who I would later marry. After the wedding I moved away from Coatbridge and now live, with my wife, in the West End of Glasgow.
Although I have dabbled in short stories my first main work of fiction started in my sixth year of high school. It was an ambitious project and at that time I lacked the skill to see it through to completion. About a year later I returned to the project. I used the work, which I had already completed, as a back story to my first Novel - Star Fantasy: The Voice of Darkness.
Between novels I write screenplays, comic scripts and short stories.
So the Saga continues...
